  • Nice little 30 min tour - manageable size museum to get a feel for the ship, the classes than passengers traveled in, and the rescue process. Lovely tour guide Lynn. 
  • Great place for a visit and friendly staff and a good guided tour. Did not realise the Titanic had picked up at Cobh. 
  • Really brings it home to you when you visit just how lucky/unlucky some of the passengers were. Fascinating visit and the rooms are excellent. Well worth a visit. 
  • Dreadful overpriced cramped uninformative tourist trap which will add nothing of note to your knowledge about the Titanic, unless you've literally never heard of the disaster before. Essentially you're visiting the old ticket office building of the White Star Line company where the ship picked up its last passengers from. You get a few badly-scripted audiovisual clips playing inside and you get to spend a bit of time in a mock third class and first class cabin. There's a couple of minutes outside up on the first floor to be shown the 200-year old pier where the passengers would have left from. This is mildly interesting, as it comes with some info about the geography of Cork harbour, but you'll be awkwardly avoiding the gazes of the pub patrons below you during this time. Luckily there's a small bell you can ring as you go back in, to tickle the five year old in you. At the end you'll be craning your neck at a massive screen in a small room, showing you a daftly-cheap animation of how the ship went down. There's then a small gallery with information boards about the event and the link with local communities. A few of these are worth reading, but after half an hour of being cramped in with 20 other people in rooms barely big enough for ten, the waste of 9.5 euros will likely occupy most of your mind anyway. Watch the movie, or find the pub in front of the building and get even closer to the old pier - it's literally the only historic artefact in the whole place anyway.
  • The Titanic experience in cobh was kind of over exaggerating just a bit when people were telling me that I have to go see it it was pretty cool that I got a ticket and I was told that this ticket that I had was an actual traveler in the Titanic and at the end you get to see if your passengers survived or not. yes we went and the actual building that the last port of the Titanic that was amazing but other than that it was a little overpriced for the ticket the experience was good but it was just about how you saw Titanic in the movie pretty much. I still had fun but it is more of a one time thing.
  • As a Titanic enthusiast I was excited to visit this historical site. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The most interesting part of the tour is certainly seeing the remains of the dock where the last of titanic a passengers boarded the steamer to be "taxied" out to Titanic which was anchored off shore Well worth a visit of in Cobh and is a short distance from Cork city by car so well worth the visit of your there too
  • Only did the exhibits. Could not do the tour because we had our 14 month old son. It would have been too much for him, due to January weather and the length of time the tour takes. So my rating is only for the exhibits. Nice exhibition with great caring staff, but I recommend going to the Cobb Heritage Center and spend some time there. It has a great deal of Titanic and Lusitania information plus other history of migrant Irish families.
  • A really nice place to visit with lots of historical information and things to see. Relive the experiences of those who boarded the Titanic from that same place in a very realistic experience.
