Although Cobh played a major role in the story of Irish emigration to America, most people know it as the final port of call for the ill-fated Titanic. Over two million immigrants departed from this seaport between 1848 and 1950, seeking a better life overseas. Today, thousands of visitors come to Cobh, drawn by its history, architecture, and natural scenery. Tourism replaced shipbuilding as the region's big business long ago, and the port now serves mostly large cruise liners. Most of Cobh's tourist attractions remain focused on its maritime and emigration legacy; for a change of pace, explore the town's bar scene, known for its atmosphere and live music. Take a peek at our world travel planner: Cobh and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
