We were very surprised when we rounded the corner to find a huge ship moored next to the Cobh Heritage Centre. Lovely shops and interesting museum.

My wife and I spent over two hours on our visit. The center gives an overview and some detail into the famine, transporting prisoners to Australia, history of Cobh and information about the Lusitania and Titanic sinkings. I especially liked the information and pictures about the building of the Titanic. The displays are very well presented and informative

Really great exhibition on the history of Cobh. Love how the old train station was converted to the heritage centre.

we loved Cobh, its a gorgeous old town with a friendly atmosphere and the Heritage Centre is in the old railway station which makes it very interesting as well as the information on the Titanic, the first immigrant into the States, the famine and other interesting historical info. The staff are very friendly and helpful too.

Very busy the day we were here but they offered free wifi. We only stopped for 10 minutes since our ship was due to sail shortly.

Cobh was an unscheduled stop on our trip round Ireland and turned out to be one of the high points. Cobh is a lovely harbour town and a stopping off point for cruise liners. The P&O Brittania was in when we visited and pretty spectacular in its own right. It was also the port of departure for many of the... More

Situated in a great old railway station. Really liked how they have utilised this building and it's right next to the dock. The man taking our €9.50 was very cheery & friendly. Some of the exhibits were good, we kind of skipped through the Titanic stuff a bit since we spent close to 4 hours on Belfast's Titanic the week... More

I thought this centre was going to be more about emigration, but most of the exhibits are about the Titanic and the Lusitania. It was interesting, but with the Titanic museum just a block down the road, it seemed like overkill.

I was not impressed with the Heritage Centre itself ... however it followed an excellent tour of Cobh with a very knowledeable guide. Heart-breaking statue just outside it. Given yourself time to look around outside the Centre.

This self-guided tour was informative. It tells about The Lusitania sinking, the Titanic & about prison ships going to Australia. Many artifacts to see & video segments. School age children who are interested in history would benefit from this.
