  • The Titanic Experience was very informative. The best part is when you purchase a ticket you are given a real person who was on board the Titanic and at the end of the guided tour you get to see if you survived or if you didn't make it. The staff is very helpful and pleasant to deal with. Only problem is the tour itself is very short, and not enough seating in a few of the areas.
  • Been to Cobh dozens of times but never did the Titanic experience until last week. I am so glad we did, so informative and really does bring you back as if you were there. The kids thoroughly enjoyed it too. Definitely worth a visit.
  • We were really impressed by the short time in this experience. The first half an hour we were on a guided tour with a very good guide taking us to the dock where the last bunch of unlucky passengers boarded the Titanic before its fateful disaster, and setting the scene well describing how impressive the ship was and giving good historical context. After she finished guiding us, the rest is self-guided, and really captivating. Utilizing technology well, it shows staggeringly scary statistics of who perished, has good letters from passengers giving testimonials to the horror, and shows with disturbing clarity what would have happened to the human body upon submerging with the icy waters. Really good hour well spent.
  • Interesting but only available in English! If you don't understand it, don't waste your money!!! Anyway liked it more than the one in Belfast.
  • If you visit Cobh you have to visit this attraction. Make sure you have a long walk around Cobh as it is a beautiful place.
