I have made many journeys into the history of Cobh at this building and I have never been disappointed in any way. The attention to detail is evident in every display with recent additions only adding to the historical aspect of the whole story of Ireland's saddest period.

This activity is really worth your time and money. They have gone out of their way to give a quite realistic impression of the impressive history of this little town. Even the venue is in the old railway station which adds to the experience. Doing this first and taking a walk through the town afterwards really putts things into perspective.

Everything you need, you can find it here! Restaurant, souvenir shop, historical place and even wifi! I used to visit Christy's Irish Gift Store because they offer lots of souvenir items at a very affordable price. I got my mood ring here for only $3 plus euros!

We came down from Cork by train to Cobh (25 minutes) and this Heritage Centre is just a few yards from the Station - in fact it is housed in the original Railway station. It is a very interesting account of emigration from Cobh especially to the West Indies and the Americas- well laid out, plenty of , but not... More

This is a nice little town with lots of history. The Queenstown Story was very interesting and information about Annie Moore was surprising. This is a great place to visit if you want to experience a little piece of history.

Cobh Heritage Centre, Cobh. We had great experience in historical environment. There are real artefacts as items of ttablowar, clothes, books, private things of Titanik's passengers. Highly recommend to visit this place to everyone who will be next Cobh!

Another excellent museum in Cobh. The kids loved the interactive displays and learning experience - well worth a family style visit.

For a museum in an old train station, this place offered far more than I expected. The exhibits provided an excellent overview of the town's history. Overall, a great place to start a trip to Cobh (and/or to hide from a rainstorm!).

We were in the Cork area and went to Cobh to understand more about Irish emigration. I had done a little research on my husbands ancestors, and think some of the immigrants to the US may have left from Cobh as the vast majority left from here. I did not know about the Titanic's last stop here to pick up... More

The Cobh Heritage Centre tells the story about the immigration experience as well as the last stop of the Titanic before it sank. The information was wonderful but overwhelming when reading the stories of the emigrants who headed mainly to America. Be prepared to be emotionally involved in their stories.
