This museum focuses on emigration from Ireland to the USA, Canada and Australia. Would especially be interesting for citizens of those countries whose ancestors come from Ireland. You can also check the records here and find out a bit more of your family history.

This is a small local museum, with info on the Lusitania, which sunk offshore, as well as other local history. It's inexpensive and worth a visit if you're in Cobh.

THis is a tiny place and costs only 2 euros so don't get too excited, but it was worth the cost and the time to view a nice little collection of local memorabilia.

A fantastic little museum to spend a few hours in checking out some local history - there is an interesting quirk to this place you will have to see to believe

Small but good overall, different information about Cobh. Irish music and dance rich history as part of the community.

We found this museum while we were exploring Cobh, and we had planned to only stay for 20 minutes or so, but we ended up staying for over an hour! You wouldn't think that such a small museum could be so packed with such great...More
