Most of Cobh's railway station is converted into this smart exhibition. Perhaps a bit pricey, but Cobh is a cruise ship port of call. Very good information about the Titanic (Cobh was its last call), also a limited amount about the Lusitania. No real mention of the (very different) causes of the two disasters, but lots of human interest about... More

Cobh is a lovely town,great if you can find ,as we had, a person who can explain how important Cobh was with regard to emigration from Eire. I found many of the panels to do with The Famine and Transportation not very informative and difficult to read. They were badly lit,in awkward positions to read and often in small poorly... More

I would recommend to go here first and not the Titanic thing. Originally we had planned to go to both places but here there was so many information about the Titanic that I don't think you need to go to the other place. At least we decided not to go. It's very informative, a lot about the famine, immigration... definitly... More

I thought this was great for a bit of history and the place was very clean and lovely. It featured nice rest rooms and a coffee and gift shop.

The Heritage Centre was not busy when we arrived however it took over 10mins to get a pot of tea and a scone. The staff were very slow and all over the place. To make matters worse the baby changing area was 'Out of Order' which is just ridiculous and meaning that our baby had to be changed in front... More

I was disappointed because I thought it would have a list of names of emigrants sort of like Ellis Island. I am sure anyone of Irish heritage has the same expectations. Also it combined the Titanic, Lusitania, prisoners sent to Australia and the potato famine so basically my interest was quartered. My grandchildren, however were most interested. There are 2...

We enjoyed this small museum. It had exhibits on the Titanic, the Lusitania, the port's history of emigration from the potato famine years, & the policies of transportation to Australia. It took a bit more than an hour and was quite interesting.

Tiny exhibition of Cobh history, more a cafe and shops. Entirely overwhelmed by coachloads of visiting tourists and the nearby cruise ships. Despite advertising wifi, when a large cruise ship is in the cruise ship blocks the wifi - be careful that meant my phone picked up the ships wifi (and mobile phone) and I got a bill from my...
