Visiting Cobh, Near Cork

What to see and do in Cobh, Ireland

Catch a glimpse of the last port the Titanic set sail! The city of Cohb is a small fishing town located on the Great Island of Cork Harbour in the southwest part of Ireland. The popularity of the city comes from the famous Titanic ship that reached the city of Cohb in 1912 before embracing the tragic fate that would await it in the Atlantic Ocean. So if you find yourself visiting the small city of Cohb you will see memorials dedicated to the Titanic and Lusitania ships. Moreover, if you arrive there in the summer, then you can even go on a Titanic Trail Tours in order to learn more about the Titanic. The city played an important role in the era of the transatlantic travel and the story of Irish emigration to America. The port of Cohb can be proud of facilitating the travel of over 1.5 million people. Until the British war against Napoleon, the city of Cohb was just a quiet and small fishing community. However, once the war started, the city was transformed due to the numerous naval fortifications in the area and was soon transformed into a busy market place and army town. Nowadays, the city of Cohb is quiet again, relaxing and welcoming as it was in the time before the Napoleonic war.
