  • Great history, learnt a lot and a good mix of different types of exhibits. Absolutely recommend and thoroughly enjoyed myself! Spent maybe 1.5h inside as I tried to read many of the writeups. Could be covered in 1h if fast or 2h if slow!
  • A great place to learn of Cobh's rich history and heritage. Much to be seen there.
  • You can watch big passenger ship's very near. Only problem is very little parking facility.
  • It was windy and cold but we walk on the streets full of flowers and forgot the wind...And St.Colman's Cathedral worth a visit !
  • Beautiful place to visit, a villiage on seafront and blessing church on background.
