Cobh & The Titanic Experience

Cobh & The Titanic Experience

Cobh (/ˈkoʊv/ kohv, Irish: an Cóbh), known from 1850 until the late 1920s as Queenstown, is a tourist seaport town on the south coast of County Cork, Ireland. Cobh is on the south side of Great Island in Cork Harbour and is home to Ireland's only dedicated cruise terminal. Tourism in the area draws on the maritime and emigration legacy of the town - including its association with the RMS Titanic.

Facing the town are Spike Island and Haulbowline Island, and on a high point in the town stands St Colman's Cathedral, one of the tallest buildings in Ireland and seat of the diocese of Cloyne.

"Cobh is an interesting place, but to my eye its attractive only when looking at it from the sea. Standing on land you look out on Cork harbour which is impressive, but busy and scarred by industry. Having said that the Titantic Experience is excellent, and a great indoor, all weather highlight. Cobh has recently become a destination for huge ocean liners and new tourist attractions are being developed to accommodate them. For now, avoid Cobh when a liner is in dock they will be swamped.
