This winter sees the return of one of our favourite seasonal activities as ice skating comes back to Cork. Cork’s Alpine Skate Trail will be set among the trees in Fota House, providing a stunning backdrop which offers an authentic rustic feeling and a real festive mood.

Just minutes from Cork city, it really is the perfect location for an ice rink, where you can enjoy the cheerful atmosphere amongst beautiful grounds.
