This is our second time visiting. It’s very well done and a respectful, serious way to learn more about those who emigrated from Ireland. Very moving.

This place is great! We had traveled here to learn about my ancestors trip to America in 1868. The Cobh Heritage Centre is excellent. It was very easy to navigate and packed with lots of information. I hope to get back again.
