A small heritage centre with a lot of maritime history to tell. Well worth a visit. Easy to follow the stories and very atmospheric.

What a well laid out and compelling area that is the Cobh Heritage Centre. The displays are interesting and well put together. After visiting and enjoying Titanic Belfast, I felt that the Titanic tribute at the Cobh centre focused more on the people who both worked on and lost their lives on the Titanic as opposed to lots of technical...

We visited Cobh Heritage Centre as part of a family reunion tour to the area. The centre has some excellent displays and everything is very well set out and explained. Part of my country's heritage began with people who sailed from Cobh and it was fascinating to learn about them, the times they lived in and the trials they experienced.... More

This is another site that tourist line up for entry after the tour bus unloads. It is not a welcome site when you driven several hrs to get in. I have done the full tour here n 2006 our family did not want to pay into this attraction. We enjoyed a lunch at a local cafe and walked around the... More

Excellent presentation of the embarking of the Irish during the famine The exhibits truly show the hardships they indured to find new homes. Also good exhibition of Titanic info. The gift shop has a large selection of gifts that are reasonable in cost. The local craftsman have tables of beautiful handmade items and are very friendly.

The last port of call for the Titanic, and ships taking Irish emigrants to America, Australia and other parts of the world, but very interesting, EVEN if you're not Irish. Inside is one of the best Titanic exhibits I've ever seen. The centre is in the old White Star Lines office and terminal, which is just a low brick building... More

We had arrived just as a cruise ship had docked aside the heritage centre which I itself was a magnificent sight, it just illustrates how much value should be given to represent Ireland and Cobh and all the history it has. Cobh itself needs a good deal of financial input to help improve the area which obviously has taken quite... More

Cobh (pronounced Cove) Heritage Centre is right on the dock, a 1 min walk from where the cruise ships dock. The museum provides interesting info on the history of Cobh and stories from the Titanic which anchored off Cobh to take on the last passengers by tender. One passenger missed the tender and the Titanic sailed, and sank, without him.
