Patrick was a saint in welcoming us to Ireland for the first time! He took us on this fascinating walking tour which not only featured insights about the Titanic but also the sinking of the Lusitania, including a fabulous memorial Cobh children to those perished. As we slowly walked and he talked, he was greeted by family and friends of whom he made a point of introducing to us as if we were family. He shares a fabulous story about hometown celebrity athlete Jack Doyle as we wended our way to the Cathedral of Cobh, St. Colman's of which we toured inside and from where we got a great view of the city and port from the outside.

An excellent walking tour of Cobh. We went - 4 friends - on May 4th. Our leader, Pat, knows everything about Cobh and the Titanic and tells the stories in an entertaining way - he's a born raconteur ! Great fun !

Michael is a great guide & gave us wonderful stories & background on this guided walking tour of Cobh.
He is so interested in the area & the whole Titanic topic that you leave the trip feeling that you have been part of the whole Titanic/Cobh experience. It is a great way to start a holiday in this area as Michael points out all the relevant & interesting attractions & landmarks that you could easily miss.
I would recommend this trip. There is not a lot of walking involved as the area covered is quite compact.

Our tour guide was super nice and explained all the important historic landmarks in the walking tour of about an hour. The tour lasts about an hour and we get to know a lot of interesting information about Cobh, its history and its culture. The stories about the titanic and emigration are fascinating. Would absolutely recommend this beautiful tour to anyone who visits Cobh.

The tour was fantastic and we highly recommend. I medium 1 hour stroll through town seeing all the relevant sights. Dennis McCarthy our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area and brought forth personal stories of the Titanic, Lusitania and Queenstown. The personal anecdotes Dennis shared helped create a connection and you felt like you were there experiencing the events. Thank you, Dennis!

What a pleasure it was to have Michael Martin as our guide. He is unbeliveably knowledgeable and has an incredible way of relating the history of Cobh to participants on the tour. It was thoroughly entertaining and informative. In our view, this is a "must do" tour when coming to Cobh. Simply brilliant!

We booked this tour through Trip Advisor. As we were the only people on the tour, Michael (Dr Michael Martin) was kind enough to give us nearly two hours of knowledge and enthusiasm regarding Cork Harbour history and authentic story of the Titanic. An expert in this area, the information was interesting and the time fly by. I look forward to reading his book and watching his video on Cobh Cathedral, which is on youtube. You will not be disappointed with his tour (only if you leave Cobh without doing it!) Couldn't recommend it more. Carol and Lawrence

We had no idea of the historical importance of this lovely, little town. Eddie gave us a wonderful, informative and entertaining tour full of fascinating facts regarding the Titanic and Lusitania, as well as additional extras about the military connections within the area. A must do if in the area!

This was a nice tour of cobh in a brief but informative way. Our guide was kind , honest with his knowledge and shared many important information including military history to which I wasn't aware of. Cobh has a sad history but many more events besides the Titanic and Lusitania share this pivotal location in Irish history.

Visited Cobh 16 Jul and really enjoyed a very informative and interesting tour by Dr Michael Martin. As well as his unique insight into the Titanic story he also explains the strategic and economic importance of Cork Harbour over many centuries. If you're in Cork on your 'staycation' this summer, a visit to Cobh and the Titanic trail is certainly worthwhile.
