If you're in Cork or even Cobh, don't miss the heritage center. You get a lot of information about the history of this place, but also about emigration from Ireland to America in general as well as information about the Titanic. Definitely worth the 8€ you pay for a ticket!

Interesting exhibit. Visited with kids, aged 11 and 15. We loved it. The people there were friendly, approachable and knowledgable. There’s a lovely gift shop, cafe, and free wifi. We’d go again.

My husband and I caught the train from Kent Station Cork to Cobh. If you have time, it is a scenic, relaxing way to get to the island on which Cobh is situated in the estuary of the River Lee. The train passes through the marshes, passing the Wildlife Park on Fota Island. The Heritage Centre, which houses "The Queenstown... More

A wonderfully well laid out exhibition. I first visited about 15 years ago and it is much better now. It is not just about the Titanic, but covers the whole history of Irish emigration to all corners of the world. I could have spent much longer there than my friends allowed!! The exhibits are very informative and well laid out.

You really get the feel for how things must have looked back in 1914 when the Titanic made her last stop before sinking. Wonderful town to walk around and this Heritage Centre is great place to get all the information that you could want. Take some time to see this lovely town.

This is a wonderful trip through history for those of us whose family history is Irish. It explains what exactly our ancestors had to endure to get to the United States and why. Great exhibit and since about 75 percent of Americans have some Irish in their background, it's just fascinating. Do not miss!

What a brilliant way to spend some time in Cobh! Top class exhibition, well laid out in the old train station building, and packed with interesting information about our maritime history, both in good times and bad. Very well presented with audio visual presentations as well as loads of displays. The section with the ships passengers below deck is particularly... More
