  • Great little heritage centre. There is a coffee shop and souvenir shop. The heritage centre is small but well worth a visit. It would take about two hours to go around. It is good for kids. There are plenty of interactive exhibits and models. The centre goes through Cobhs rich maritime history. It covers everything from pirates, coffin ships, the famine, emigration to the Americas and Australia and Tasmania as well as obviously the town's connection to the Titanic.
  • An ok museum. Had lot of videos that explains Ireland's famine time and how people migrate to other countries. Worth to visit once. It also has great collection of shipping services at the time of titanic era. There is a cafe at the front for a quick bite. There are some artifacts that are collected from titanic displayed here. Very interesting.
  • I honestly don't know where to begin to explain this place and the staff. I'll be going back. Great history lesson. Great town.
  • Great place to indulge in more History of Queenstown. Great facilities for food and options for Gluten free items is a bonus. Very knowledgeable and helpful staff. Highly recommend.
  • If in Cobh don't miss out and visit this amazing centre. Lots of local historical stories and features So we'll put together and good value The old station cafe was a lovely venue to relax in Fantastic atmosphere
