Popped into the heritage center to grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the water front view. Had no idea that this attraction was inside to be honest. So, I grabbed my coffee and wandered through the exhibit. It was fascinating! "The Queenstown Story" exhibit I thought was quite excellent! It is small, but a perfect little pitstop with a... More

It is located in the old railway station. It provides the visitor with information on emigration in the region, famine ships and the sinking of the Lusitania. Well worth a... More

Heritage Centre was interesting but very small. Expected something a lot larger. Didn't have that much to look at.

“The Queenstown story” Back in the 1980’s the local community began a project to rescue the history of Cobh (Cove in Gaelic) , and this centre was built for that purpose. Here we saw a statue of Annie Moore & her two younger brothers. She was the first Irish woman to sign the Immigrant’s book in Ellis Island, New York.... More

Cobh is easy to get to and a visit to the Heritage centre a must. This exhibition tells the story of this beautiful port town and the links with the Titanic. The cost to go in was 24 euro for a family of four.

As Staycationers from Dublin, we really found this tourist attraction worthwhile. It is really huge! and it's wheelchair friendly as well. We learned a lot, don't miss it!

The museum covers a lot of topics like the sin kings of the Titanic and the Lusitania as well as the migrations from Ireland to North America and Australia. In general, the museum is well done, but that many topics in a small museum means that none are covered extensively. All that said, it was well worth the price of... More

On arrival, one is greeted by the statue of Annie Moore and her two brothers...she being the first emigrant to be processed at Ellis Island, New York. Once inside the historical themed building and see all the displays, one can't help getting the feeling that their actually living back in those days. It was so detailed and well displayed that...
