Cobh Heritage Centre – Queenstown Experience

Address: Cobh Heritage Centre, Cobh, Co. Cork; approximately 30 minutes drive from Cork City.

Visit the picturesque town of Cobh, built on a hill side and dominated by St. Colman’s Cathedral. The harbour and the town has been the last sight of Ireland for many thousands of emigrants. From 1848 – 1950, over 6 million adults and children emigrated from Ireland – over 2.5 million departed from Cobh, making it the single most important port of emigration.

The “Queenstown Experience” at The Cobh Heritage Centre is dedicated to the memory of those emigrants, those who made it to their destination and those who didn’t. Explore the history of these brave souls who embarked on a new life from the famous town of Cobh.
