This exhibit was a delightful surprise. It is extremely well done and, for the most part, tells the story of the people of Ireland who left from Cobh during the potato famine. There is also a portion dedicated to the people who either worked on the Titanic or left as passengers on the Titanic. The Centre is located inside of... More

I visited the centre on a weekend trip to cobh and found it very informative and enjoyable. I learned things about the Irish famine that I was unaware about and loved looking at the various pictures, photos and displays. Definitely worth a visit.

access to transportation to Cork city. Very accommodating staff. Fair prices in shops and eateries. Cobh has more to offer than some of the bigger cities.

We went when it wasn't crowed and enjoyed the quiet pace and reflection as we studied each exhibit. It's an important topic and historically relevant, but I'm not sure the curator tells enough of a story. The storyline was not clear and there is so much yet to be learned about emigration. Nicely paired with a gift shop and snack... More

A short walk from our cruise ship at the railroad stop. Professionally prepared exhibits presented in an interesting manner. Do not miss.

We traveled to Cobh Heritage to learn a bit of what it was like to immigrate from Ireland as our ancestors did. We learned so much about the Titanic. The exhibit there is really tremendous and you won't want to miss it. Just 30 minute from Cork on the water and just beautiful.

Our cruise ship was berthed just a few minutes walk from this center and I was interested in learning more about the Titanic. There were many black-and-white photos that were taken by Rev. Francis Browne, a Jesuit priest, who sailed the first leg of the Titanic’s maiden voyage from Southampton, England, but disembarked in Ireland before the Titanic sailed toward... More

This is a very professionally prepared documentation of the emigrant chapter and passenger ship business of the last century. It is slick and well done in many details. Nice continuity and flow made it easy to follow. Unfortunately, and probably due to the limited number of different images available, most of the material presented appears multiple times throughout the experience.... More
