The cruise port for the Irish city of Cork is Cobh, which lies on an island called Great Island, 20 miles from Cork city centre. Cobh (pronounced ‘Cove’) is dominated by an imposing neo-gothic cathedral and has lots of steep, winding streets which lead to the centre. The centre itself is quite flat though, and is dotted with brightly-coloured houses, bars, shops, restaurants and cafes. Everywhere you look you’ll see monuments dedicated to all sorts of people – sports stars, explorers and even Titanic passengers.
Many cruise ship passengers arriving at Cobh decided to spend the day visiting Cork, which is much larger with more to see and do. You can take the train from Cobh to Cork quite easily, it takes around 20 minutes. Cork is a cosmopolitan city, with a hipster scene and artisan coffee bar on pretty much every corner. Top places to visit include Cork City Gaol, St Fin Barre’s Cathedral and the Crawford Art Gallery. Cork is a great shopping city, and the English Market is a great place to visit to sample local produce.
The currency in Cobh is the Euro. Cobh is in the same time zone as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
