Family Fun at Fota
Starting with an Easter Egg Trail on Easter Saturday and culminating in an art competition during Heritage Week in late August, children will learn about cultural heritage in their local community and will be encouraged to develop an appetite for caring for heritage at an early age.

The programme of events encourages discovery and active participation. Cooking in the Pasta in the old kitchen with local food historian Regina Sexton will involve children cooking and tasting a number of 19th century dishes. KinderGardening and a Tree Trails with enthusiastic ecologist Dale Treadwell will involve planting wildflower seeds, potting oak seedlings and tree bark rubbing activities.

Entertaining storyteller SeŠn O'Laoghaire will transport childrens imaginations back to the time of Fota's early days and bring these stories to life. SeŠn will then lead art workshops where children will prepare their entries for the Art Competition which takes place during Heritage Week. The Art Competition is open to local primary and secondary schools - children are invited to enter art which depicts their interpretation of Fota House, Arboretum & Gardens. The art will be exhibited at Fota House during Heritage Week from 29th August ‚€ď 1st September and photos of the winners‚€ô artwork will be published on the Irish Heritage Trust Website.
