Fota Scout Centre

COVID-19 Update, 28th June 2021

The Centre will reopen on July 15th for camping and day visits only. The cottage facilities will not be available for the summer months - this will be reviewed for autumn based on future updates from Scouting Ireland and the Centre's own risk assessment.

Only one overnight group will be permitted on site at anyone time for the rest of the year.

All guests must abide with Scouting Ireland's COVID regulations while on site.

Please note we are not running the SI family camping scheme that the National Campsites are partaking in.

Looking forward to welcoming you to the Centre again in a brighter, better and vaccinated 2021!
