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.

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.

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!

A small art centre that is interesting to visit. It is also linked to the tourist info centre where they cannot do enough for you - very friendly staff.
