The bus driver on the Cork park and ride recommended we payed a visit to the Cobh Heritage Centre and I'm glad we went. Cobh it's self as a town is disappointing. We had an half hour walk round and were then bored so decided to head straight to the Heritage Centre. It's a lovely building and the little cafe... More

This is a must see attraction if you are ever in Cobh. Although Cobh (formerly Queenstown) is properly known for the Titanic, there is so much more for visitors. From emmigration, transportation of convicts to Austrlia, the Lusitania, liner travel between the wars and up to more recent times this heritage centre tells you just why Cobh was so important

I'd visited many years ago and found it to be largely unchanged. Had a nice coffee in the restaurant and the toilets were convenient.

What a brilliant use of an old railway station. Shops to purchase souvenirs and also to have a meal. Beautifully restored and worth a visit.

A fascinating exhibition showing the history of emigration, the Lusitania and some Titanic memorabilia. Housed in the old railway buildings this is one of the best centres of its type that we have visited. Its exhibits range from the human to the technical with something for everyone.

We only stopped here because we were on a tour, but we are glad we did! It is a small heritage center, but very interesting. If you are interested in the history of the Titanic's last port before heading to NY or the history of the Irish immigrating to America, this is worth a stop.

This was a thriving seaport years ago and has a long maritime history. Maritime history buffs will love this place. Nice to walk around you feel the history of this place.

I am very steeped in Irish history, but the rest of the family less so. Still, all of us found the center very interesting. To quote my wife, " it was a lot more interesting than I expected when we were going in. " Two helpful points: (1) this includes "The Titanic Experience". I don't know why Trip Advisor treats...

My family went 20 years ago and said it was much more impressive this time around. Doesn't take too long to get through and creates a better understanding of what Irish emigration was really like. Simple cafeteria inside as well.

I enjoyed spending a bit of time in this very well done heritage centre. Very well designed exhibits. Snack bar, ample tables. Pleasant, stress free morning spent here. Right on the water.
