Located on the South West coast of Ireland, Cork is the largest of all Irish counties and to many the most varied. Steeped in over 4,000 years of history Cork today offers its visitors a rich and distinctive cultural heritage.
It is a county full of colour and contrasts which includes some of Ireland’s most attractive and colourful landscapes. From the bustling friendly streets of Cork City to the rugged beauty of West Cork, the tranquility and enchantment of North Cork and the holiday atmosphere of East Cork, the region is a land of diversity waiting to be discovered and enjoyed. Most cruise ships berth at Cobh Cruise terminal – Ireland’s only dedicated cruise terminal. Passengers may disembark onto the quayside where Cobh Heritage Centre is located.
The centre provides a graphic illustration of living conditions in Ireland during the last century and it highlights the advances from early coffin ships to latter day transatlantic liners.Cobh town, situated within a few hundred yards of the shipside, projects a special old world atmosphere and traces of its maritime past are evident throughout the town.
