Cobh, once known as Queenstown, reverted to its old Irish name in 1922.
It is a beautiful, evocative place with a history that not many other places can boast of – this is where thousands of hopeful Irish left their birth country for a new life in America.
It was once a place of hope, and the lush green fields, brightly coloured houses and impressive views still radiate that hope today.
When visiting Cobh you might want to head for Cobh Cathedral. Overlooking Cork Harbour, this imposing building is the heart of Cobh, and this is where over 100 years of religious services have taken place. There are 49 bells in the tower here, and when they ring out it is something to behold.
The Titanic Experience is another exceptional historical attraction that will give you an insight into how it must have felt to be one of the third class passengers on the infamous ship. It is located in the original White Star Line ticket office, and as such has a special history all of its own.
The Cobh Heritage Centre will give you all the information you could want about the city of Cobh, and the story of mass emigration from Ireland – it is not to be missed.
