[Ireland] Titanic’s Last Stop-Cobh鐵達尼的最後停靠站-Cobh

I believe you all have that experience when you saw a picture on Instagram then you told yourself straightway that you’re gonna visit there someday, that’s what led me to Cobh-Titanic’s last stop. Cobh is recently exposed for its colorful houses with a big church as its background, today I’m gonna show you the exact point for this wonderful view which I almost went through the entire city to find.

(Just in case you are in my earlier situation-not knowing how to pronounce, Cobh is pronounced as “Cove”)

我相信你們也有過經驗,看到一張照片後就立誓一定要造訪這個地方,而這就是引領我來到Cobh的因素-鐵達尼號的最後一站。Cobh最近因為一排的彩色房子配上後面的St. Colman教堂而開始曝光,今天我會帶你們找到拍攝這張照片的絕佳位置(相信我,真的不簡單)

(可能也有人跟我一樣看著Cobh這個單子愣著不知道該怎麼發音, Cobh的發音像”Cove”)

When we just got off the train we saw this Ferry and thought that was the Titanic Museum, haha

 

The first thing you’ll see after getting out of the station-Annie Moore Statue 出了車站第一眼會看到的-Annie Moore雕像

Cobh Heritage Center

Recorded the history of this town. You can learn about the immigration story of this Historical town.

記錄著這個小鎮的歷史與愛爾蘭移民潮的故事


Titanic museum 

One attracting reason for this museum is that the boarding card you get looks exactly the same as the ones the Titanic passengers get, with a real passenger name on it. You can find which class you are, how old the passenger was, and before you leave the museum there is a board for you to check if you are rescued or not.  

(If you’re lucky enough, maybe you got the chance to choose if you want a younger passenger’s ticket or older passenger’s ticket.) 

In the museum you get to see how it looks like to stay as a 1st class passenger or a 3rd class passenger, you get to smell how it was like in different corners of Titanic and get to experience the sinking fear in a cinematographic room.

鐵達尼博物館

鐵達尼號博物館吸引人的其中一個原因是因為你會拿到跟當時鐵達尼號乘客所拿到的登船證一模一樣的登船證,上面會有真實呈客的姓名。你可以知道這位乘客的艙等,年紀,離開博物館之前還可以看這位乘客有沒有被救起來。

(幸運的話,售票員會問你你想要年輕一點的乘客還是有年紀的)

The passenger I’m holding survived!/我的登船證上的乘客存活了!

The Heartbreak Pier-the last point for passengers who boarded Titanic/ 鐵達尼停靠的最後一個港口
What class do you think this is comparing to the one below?與下面的房間相比,你認為這是什麼艙等呢?

Bingo!

 

Farmer’s market 

Opening: every Friday 10-13 

Markets are the best while travelling! Located right beside the Titanic museum, my visit was after 13 so there weren’t many vendors left. If you’re visiting on a Friday, check it out for me;)

農夫市集

營業時間: 每周五10-13

旅行中我最喜歡的就是市集了!這個市集在鐵達尼博物館旁邊,由於我去的時候已經超過1點了攤販所剩無幾,如果你們也是周五到訪Cobh的話幫我看看吧;)

The perfect spot for photo 

Seroiusly, I walked for almost 2 hours to find this exact point for this photo, I thought just kept going uphill will be right but turnout I’m on the wrong track. 

For good photos you have to make some effort, and that is-climb a wall!! This is so far the craziest thing Ive done for a photo. On top of the wall was quite spacious and a great place to chill, I think I was up there for almost 30 minutes or more? I even helped some other tourists to take some photos of this fantastic view also!

拍照絕佳位置

老實說,我們走了快2個小時就為了找到照片中這個拍攝點,本來以為一直往上走就會找到把教堂跟房子一起收進相機裡的角度,但事實上並不是。

拍出好的照片是需要付出努力的就是…爬牆!這是我為了拍照做過最誇張的事了,但是爬上牆看到眼前的風景以後一切都值得了。牆上的空間其實夠讓你坐穩穩的,坐在上面其實很放鬆愜意,我好像坐了快30分鐘吧?雖然受到不少的注目禮關照但是也幫其他遊客拍了漂亮的照片。

 

Would love to hear how you think about Cobh also:)
