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”)
Train: Kent Station Cork-Cobh
Price: €9.9/ Leap Card: €9.48
*The train station is a bit far from the city center, be sure to be on your Train on time (we missed one and have to wait for another hour, oops)
火車: Kent Station Cork-Cobh
票價: €9.9/ Leap Card: €9.48
When we just got off the train we saw this Ferry and thought that was the Titanic Museum, haha
Cobh Heritage Center
Recorded the history of this town. You can learn about the immigration story of this Historical town.
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.
The passenger I’m holding survived!/我的登船證上的乘客存活了!
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;)
St. Colman’s Cathedral
Where the colorful houses are
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!
Would love to hear how you think about Cobh also:)
