I love Fota Island. Its very close to Waterford & also to Cork City. Lovely Hotel on the grounds, fabulous little rental houses to rent out. Gorgeous hotel with Spa on the grounds & magnificent golf course. Plenty to do & see. Great walks around the grounds too.

Everything about our stay was great. I got a last minute deal so unfortunately because it was busy (easter weekend) we couldn't get a reservation for the restaurant.
