Cobh Ireland in County Cork. Known as Queenstown from 1849 until 1920. Cobh is pronounced “Cove”. We spent two nights in Cobh at the Commodore Hotel and really enjoyed the little town. Cobh features the Titanic Experience. It was a nice visit and Cobh was the last place the Titanic docked before heading out to sea. We walked around St. Colman’s church which is one of the tallest buildings in Ireland. We would like to have gone inside but it was closed at the time.
Cobh Ireland was also the departure point for about 2.5 million Irish that emigrated to the United States between 1848 and 1950. If you have Irish ancestry, it is very likely that they departed from Cobh.
Like many small Irish towns it is very alive during the day but after around 5 or 6pm most everything shuts down except for the pubs/restaurants which can be frustrating sometimes.
I am a little disappointed in the Drone footage I shot as I think there was an incorrect setting and the footage is not super clear. Unfortunately I was not able to see the issue until I returned to the US, but it will still give you a good idea of the beauty of Cobh Ireland.
