  Pretty downtown Cobh

Favorite thing: This town was originally named Cove. When Queen Victoria first visited Ireland, she arrived in Cove and it was renamed Queenstown after her. In 1920, the name was reverted back to Cobh(pronounced "Cove' ),this time using the Gaelic spelling. "Bh" is pronounced as "v" in Gaelic.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
