I have been there few times, it is a quiet small Centre but very pleasant, always clean, excellent food, reasonable dinning prices and before you leave you can buy nice presents. I almost forgot, you can also buy 2 coins: one of them is for the Titanic 100 Year Anniversary and the second is to commemorate the migration of Irish... More

Being German I don't know much about Irish history. I'd heard about the famine and I know that a lot of Irish people emigrated to America, but really there is only very patchy knowledge here. The exhibition at Cobh Heritage Centre has helped me to fill some of these gaps. There is information about emigration, deportation to Australia and the... More

We spent a delightful few hours having coffee and cake , looking around the historical pieces and shopping in the delightful stores... and all under one roof. The heritage centre is part of the original railway station that was downgraded, so it's a delightful place to spend a few hours looking around, enjoying the coffee AND all of this under... More

Allow a couple of hours for your visit. The displays are extremely well laid out, creating a real atmosphere. Excellent use is made of mirrors in the later parts of the exhibition. The sensation of being on an immense deck is amazing. It looks as if you could walk for ever. All the written information is only in English. A... More

Very informative time spent reliving the tales of the people who departed from this town. Very sad stories, but the walk through the museum is enjoyable

This is a must visit in Cobh. Not only due you here history on the Titanic and Lusitania, but also some historical background on Irish history. I would definitely recommend.

We did visit the Cobh Heritage Center with a family of 3. When you enter the building, looking like an old railroad station, it looks very promising. However we found the Titanic exhibition quite boring, showing lots of writing on the walls, but little interactivity. You could find most of this information in any library or on the Internet. For...

My brother and I decided to stop in Cobh briefly to see the monuments and the Heritage Centre. We did not anticipate how much would be in the Heritage Centre! There was a lot to read about and look at, and we ended up staying there for quite a while. The price seemed a little steep, but they have a... More
