Cobh Things to Do: 56 reviews and 91 photos
Coming out of the cathedral, hopefully to blue skies and bright sunlight, you now get a big reward for your effort in climbing up so high. Cross the road to the railing at the other side and revel in the panorama of Cork harbour laid out below. Cobh is actually an island within the harbour and immediately facing it are the smaller islands of the former prison, Spike Island and the former Nayy base of Haulbowline. To the right is Ringaskiddy ( where you can see the Brittany Ferries ship berthed) and to the east is Roches Point. During the heyday of emigration, people flocked to this vantage point for last glimpses of the vessels carrying their loved ones and it is still a favourite spot for birds eye views of the town and harbour.
