About Cobh

Pronounced 'Cove', Cobh is the cruise port of Ireland's second biggest city, Cork, and boasts one of Europe's largest natural harbours.  Poignantly, it was also the final departure point of the ill-fated Titanic.

With its colourful seafront houses, the town has the feel of a true seaside resort, dominated by a cathedral offering fabulous views over the bay. Nearby Cork City, European Capital of Culture in 2005, hosts many festivals, ranging from jazz and folk to choral and film. The bustling city centre is home to fascinating shops and markets while traditional Irish music can be heard in many of the historic pubs and bars which populate the city centre.

Six miles inland from the city lies - and we use the word advisedly - the town of Blarney with its famous Blarney Stone. Positioned more than 80-feet up in the battlements of Blarney Castle, legend has it that kissing the limestone block provides the one puckering up with the gift of what is euphemistically called "persuasive" speech.
