Attraction details
Owner description: Titanic Experience Cobh is a permanent visitor centre, located in the original White Star Line Ticket Office in the centre of Cobh town (formally known as Queenstown) in what was the departure point for the final 123 passengers who boarded the Titanic. Our visitor experience is presented in two parts. The first is an exciting immersive audio visual tour retracing the steps of the 123 passengers who boarded Titanic from Queenstown on April 11th 1912. Experience their anticipation of the long journey ahead and their new life waiting in America. With Fourth Officer Boxall as your virtual guide and using innovative audio visual technology and replica set designs, ‘passengers’ will experience what life would have been like on board for those 123 Queenstown Passengers. Passengers will share the excitement of boarding the most Luxurious liner of her time and feel the horror of the tragedy on that fateful night on the 15th April 1912.

This was a nice accessible attraction. You were shown round by a guide, backed up by interactive elements. The tour was informative but short. This would make it good for children or those with a very basic knowledge of the titanic story. Real enthusiasts may have higher expectations.
It is very evocative, as you are standing where some of those who boarded stood and you are in the original ticket office building. We enjoyed the tour and those who wished could spend longer going around the exhibition/display area afterwards.
Worth a visit.

My visit to the Titanic Experience, Cobh, was a very pleasant one indeed. Before ever purchasing the tickets we had such an interesting chat. Our guide was super-efficient and made us welcome and explained clearly what was about to take place. Our tickets assigned a passenger name to us and we were asked to remember the name and find out at the end whether we "survived" or not. A short video explained what it was like joining the Titanic on its maiden and indeed final voyage. We were assigned to lifeboat number 7, the first one launched when the Titanic hit the iceberg. We saw a view of the harbour just as if we were embarking 101 years ago. When we struck the rock we were escorted to our lifeboat and "saved" There followed many items of information and an interesting video - our guide had warned us not to miss it.!
I will certainly be taking all future visitors to see/experience what we saw and experienced.

Very interesting and very sad. You are one of the passengers named on your ticket and you get to see what became of them.

If you are at all interested in the Titanic, this is a must see! You actually stand in the building that passengers stood in prior to boarding the ship. There is a lot of information about the Titanic and the people that were on board. A great piece of history!

We went here not sure about what to expect as it seems the "Titanic" has been so overdone lately. It is very well done and we found it very interesting. Happy we went.
