So many artefacts from the locality, and all explained with patient care and attention to detail. They include WW1 German, French and British soldiers' helmets: did the Frenchman survive the strike to his head? Atmospheric surroundings of an old Presbyterian church adds greatly to the experience.

I was captivated by its exhibits and spent a lot of time viewing each one and reading its history. In September this year they had an exhibition highlighting the role of the horse in the First World War.

We read about the port area of Cobh and detoured there when we drove from Cork. We found the museum and went in without high expectations. It is a little gem with its emphasis on emigration from Ireland and the steam ships. We spent a very pleasant couple of hours there and enjoyed ourselves. Well worth the drive to quirky... More

Wow, I thought this was still a Church!!! was wondering what the horse was doing out front!!! This is a really small old Presbyterian Church which was donated to the town by the last Rector (sorry if that's not official title). The horse outside (not real!) was representative of the exhibition of the role of the horse in World War... More

Each of the small towns have a church and a small local museum that gives an overview of their community. The Cobh Museum staff are very friendly and helpful. There is small gift shop and most importantly clean bathrooms. There were drawings, paintings and local artifacts.

Fascinating piece of Irish history. This was the last stop of the Titanic to board passengers before the fateful voyage. Cobh is a lovely quaint town.
