Cobh has a great museum called The Queenstown Story. (NB: The city of Cobh used to be named Cove, then one time the (English) Queen visited and they got all excited and renamed it Queenstown, then they were like, dude, why’d we rename it after the Queen, we’re tired of being bullied about by the British and they renamed it Cove, but not just Cove, they named it with the Irish spelling of Cobh.)
Cobh’s harbor was the last port of call for thousands of people fleeing Ireland during the Potato Famine years and then during the era of the large steamships of the Cunard and White Star Lines. Including, in fact, the Titanic. Cobh was the Titanic‘s last port of call.
Travel Buddy waits to board a ship to…well, Ag Ullmhu Don Aistear, of course.
Travel Buddy recreates a scene from the Titanic, B.F. (Before Flooding.)
Nice little building where the first class passengers waited for a small boat to come pick them up and take them to the Titanic (B.F., of course.)
