There were two rooms, one of which had two paintings in and the other a strange projected series which left me very confused. It was free and attached to the Visitor Information Centre so proved useful for free maps but not an inspired selection of art....very sad looking staff as well.

The Sirius Arts Centre and Tourist Information building is located just to the west of Cobh Pier and Park, right on the waterfront. The art displayed is mostly contemporary (which isn't really my thing, but many will enjoy it more). The Centre is closed on Mondays. The Visitor's Center has a lot of great information on Cobh and the area... More

This building once housed the Royal Yacht Club, now the oldest operational yacht club in the world. It now houses the Cobh Tourist office and plays host to many cultural events and concerts throuout the year.

We didn't spend too much time in the "Arts Centre" part as such, but we started off in the Tourist Info which is in the same building in Cobh, which I would recommend to every visitor. A very nice lady called Debbie advised us on how to spend our day in Cobh, with advice on better parking spots, offers in... More

But if you are in Cobh you can visit it. It hosts many shows and exhibitions, but it is very small and a bit boring.

This is a must, tho' avoid when full. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Lovely 'Irish' goods for people visiting from abroad. Bring your purse - not one to 'peruse'..you'll buy!! Enjoy!
