Titanic Experience Cobh is a permanent visitor centre, located in the original White Star Line Ticket Office in the centre of Cobh town (formally known as Queenstown) in what was the departure point for the final 123 passengers who boarded the Titanic. Our visitor experience is presented in two parts. The first is an exciting immersive audio visual tour retracing the steps of the 123 passengers who boarded Titanic from Queenstown on April 11th 1912. Experience their anticipation of the long journey ahead and their new life waiting in America. With Fourth Officer Boxall as your virtual guide and using innovative audio visual technology and replica set designs, ‘passengers’ will experience what life would have been like on board for those 123 Queenstown Passengers. Passengers will share the excitement of boarding the most Luxurious liner of her time and feel the horror of the tragedy on that fateful night on the 15th April 1912.

I brought two American visitors here last week and was so impressed. I really enjoyed the experience which was very entertaining even if you think you know everything about the Titanic. It is an audio visual delight and you even get to be a passenger . The question is did you make it off the ship alive visit and find... More

The Titanic experience, is interactive and very informative. DIfferent area's of the ship are re-created, and visitors become 'passengers'. There is an account of each of the Irish passengers that were on board, which makes the experience very personal. The guide was well informed and very interesting.

Cobh (Pronounced Cove) is a very pleasant town overall, not many people including me knew that this was the last place the Titanic sailed from, so well worth catching up on some historical facts , also quite a few bodies from the Lusitania sunk by a german Uboat in Kinsale are buried here.

Visited this Easter, very sweet exhibition. Little bit of a loose (the Titanic only stopped for 90 mins!) link to the Titanic bit they do it well. Perfect stop for lunch on our way back from Cork to Waterford, not sure I'd make a dedicated journey for it.

I had been to the Titanic museum in Belfast, which I found quite impressive, and wondered how this small place is going to compare. It was actually very interesting, and informative, and was a bit of fun, too. You are assigned a name of real passenger that boarded the ship on the fatal travel back in 2012, and at the... More

We appreciated the dramatic setting in which to see the actual dock and a quick view of a steerage room and a first class room. The exhibits were interesting and just brief enough to be interesting. Nice gift store and friendly girls running the experience.

This exhibit is really very well done. As soon as you buy your ticket you become invested in the tour. You are brought through the building, which was the original ticket house, onto heartbreak pier where so many people said goodbye to loved ones. The guides are very friendly and helped along by officer vauxhaul. Well worth a visit. I... More

Since the Titanic only spent 90 mins in Cobh, this exhibition has less to say than the titanic experience in Belfast. But what it does, it does very nicely. Since the famous Fr. Brown disembarked in Cobh, a number of his photos are used to good effect and the audio-visual exhibits are informative. Staff were pleasant and the take-home tickets... More

Loved the Titanic Experience. It's a pity it isn't bigger as we didn't want to leave. The staff were lovely and we really enjoyed the tour. The highlight is definitely getting the ticket with a passengers name at the start and checking what happened to that passenger when you reach the end.

As a big fan of Titanic and the history surrounding her I was wanting to go here for a while and was very excited to visit. The building is amazing, with it being the original White Star ticket office there's a real sense of history there. You can imagine the excitement as passengers lined up to get their tickets and...

Dear Visitor We are delighted that you enjoyed your visit. We would love to expand the exhibit but unfortunately we are restricted in size. The Bar and Grill downstairs are operated by a separate company independent of ourselves. We thank you for taking the time to give us a great review.
