An interesting exhibition and I lot of information available. It was a tasteful tribute to the ship. I think the thing that stuck with me was standing on the balcony looking at an old photo to think I was in exactly the same spot. Then being able to walk to see where the ship moored prior to departure. A pleasant... More

Whereas Titanic Belfast focuses more on the overall story of the Titanic, the Titanic Experience in Cobh is a more personal one. When you buy your ticket, it has on it the name of a real person who boarded from Cobh, who you can discover the fate of at the end. The Experience takes you on a journey from the... More

At a loose-end one Saturday afternoon, 3 of us took a train from Cork to Cobh (which in itself is worth it for the lovely journey) to visit the Titanic Experience. And it was well worth it. It wasn't very expensive (E9.50 per adult) for what you get. When you buy your ticket you get the boarding card of someone... More

Interesting tour of Titanic's last pick up point. The boarding cards of real passengers made it more authentic.

Overcrowded and overpriced, to be honest, but still a place you simply want to visit if you are in anyway interested in the story about the Titanic.

this was one of the most exciting experience, first of all the place (Cobh) is beautifull by itself and second the titanic experience is a must especially the last photos taken by Fr Brown. The surroundings make feel as if you are living in the times of the titanic, especially when 10 beautiful ladies ventured in the area wearing full... More

The exhibit and guides were quite informative, and there was much to see. Unfortunately, my character was not one of the survivors. This is located right off the docks where many cruise ships berth and at the end of the train ride into the city.

My husband and I visited Cobh recently and we decided to visit the Titanic Experience.We were so glad we did. The cost was €9.50 per person but so worth it. Your ticket has the name of a person who actually travelled on the Titanic and at the end of the tour you can check on a screen your age, reason... More

The museum starts with buying a ticket for the titanic. We lined up and were then guided along the places the passengers once passed through. It really was an interesting experience, immersive and felt eerie to stand in the same spot that many a lost soul had once stood. I have been to a titanic exhibit in my own home... More

The Titanic Experience was a great way to spend a couple of hours on a rainy day (unusual for Ireland). The tour allowed us to experience life as first and third class passengers on the maiden voyage of Titanic. The displays were very well laid out and the comparisons with cruising today are truly remarkable. Our tickets had the name... More
