This is a great place to visit. You can sit at the end of the canal watching the swans and other water fowl, there are boats bobbing on the water and very few people about. You can also sit looking over the Mersey sometimes seeing porpoises. It is my little bit of peace.
The short trip over to Spike island is well worth taking if you're in the area. The boat trip is short and pleasant with great views of Cobh. The tours of Spike were very well run. The guided tour is relatively short and entertaining, leaving you with plenty of time to explore…
We took the boat over from Cobh to Spike Island. It used to be a prison. It was a wet and windy day and yet we barely noticed this once we landed. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. It is a facinating place to visit and I'd highly recommend it.
Fantastic experience , one of the best tours I've been on.. Huge thanks to our enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide Karl. Would definitely recommend.
