Places to See | Co. Cork, Ireland



Between 1848 and 1950 over 6 million adults and children emigrated from Ireland. Over 2.5 million departed from Cobh, making it the single most important port of emigration. Cobh Heritage Centre tells the story of this mass emigration and also offers a unique genealogy search service designed for people interested in tracing their ancestors.

Cobh was also the last port of call for the ill-fated Titanic.

Cobh is a great place to visit in Co Cork as you can savour the atmosphere of the restored Victorian Railway Station and at the Heritage Centre. Sample some  renowned home-made produce. The Queenstown Restaurant is open seven days a week Monday to Saturday 10.00 – 5pm, Sunday and Bank Holidays 11 – 5pm. Hot meals, pastries and sandwiches are served throughout the day.
