“Beautiful Town. Must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

This is a beautiful little town. We visited the cathedral, which is amazing. On the side of the cathedral with the gift shop, look over the rail by the church. There's Holy Water with a spigot. The colorful homes are wonderful. The Titanic museum was good. There are bathrooms in the Heritage Center as well as shopping. Theres a boat tour but we didn't go cause of time. I thought it was worth visiting.

“Reminded me of home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

Cobh boasts tremendous history as the last post of call for the Titanic. St. Colman's Cathedral overlooks the military installation and British officer housing - both have heritage protection. The cathedral also faces "deck-of-cards" colourful houses. The Heritage Centre has a great museum complete with replicas of rooms on the coffin ships that carried so many starving Irish during the great famine. And, not to be without character, a politician campaignng for Fine Gale stopped us to chat and stump. Fabulous.

“A Charming Village”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

This charming village was a overnight stop on our Atlantic repositioning cruise. The citizens were very friendly. We enjoyed a Saturday night "pub crawl" with some ship mates.

“Visit The Cathedral - It's a Must Do .....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

This was our second visit on cruise ships and we loved it so much the first time that we decided to explore it again rather than go further afield.
Cobh (pronounced Cove) was the last place the Titanic docked before setting off on its il fated journey.

It is a lovely little town with many quaint typically Irish pubs.

St Coleman's Cathedral overlooks the town and harbour and provides spectacular views. A visit to the cathedral really is a must. It is just over 100 years old but is an absolutely beautiful place and in excellent condition. You will wonder how such a small town has such a massive
cathedral.

On the harbour side the Titanic Bar and Grill stands on the site of the original jetty that ship sailed from, and above the bar is a Titanic Museum. If the weather is fine this bar is ideal for sitting outside and watching ships in and out of the harbour.

All in all a really lovely town with very friendly people. Well worth a visit.

“Wonderful Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

Rather then take the bus to Kinsale, I decided on a train ride to Cobh (pronounced Cove). I guess bh in Ireland is pronounced as a v. For example Siobhan. Anyhow it is an interesting town with a fascinating history
