The Titanic Memorial
This is a memorial to the Irish emmigrant victims of the Titanic . Cobh was the last stop of this ship before its tragic sinking in 1912.
One of the displays
If you visit Cobh and only get to see one thing, this should be it! The Queenstown Story is a museum which nicely presents the rich history of Cobh. There are displays on the Titanic,the Lusitania,the potato famine,Irish emmigration, the cruise ships, the coffin ships, and the convict ships . It is extremely interesting.
