  Cobh's elegant architecture.
by Ekaterinburg

Leaving the railway station, a few minutes uphill brings you to the the street overlooking the front prom. Here it is immediately obvious that the architecture is in no way representative of that of an average, medium-sized Irish town. It looks much more like an English seaside town and is frequently compared to Brighton. This elegant air is in keeping with a town visited by Queen Victoria in 1849 and one where Winston Churchill spent many months overseeing the dispatch of troops to the British Empire. Looking upward, you will see many more terraces and crescents of period houses. Remember that in its golden era, great tranatlantic liners stopped regularly at Cobh and that these streets were thronged with colourful and important visitors.
