Cobh: 1-Hour Titanic Ghost Tour

1. Cobh: 1-Hour Titanic Ghost Tour

Tapping into a rich Irish folklore, hear tales of the paranormal and hauntings as you wander the darkened streets of Cobh on this 1-hour ghost tour of a town that has remained virtually unchanged since RMS Titanic departed from Cork Harbour in 1912. Learn about the spectre of a young Irish emmigrant, the haunting of Pillars Bar, and the ghostly cries of a child at a local hotel. Suitable for all ages, and a great family night out, the ghost walk is also a great precursor to an office party, corporate outing, or hen night. Formerly known as “Queenstown,” Cobh is at the heart of Ireland’s immigration, transportation, and cruise liner history. It’s most famous as the last port of call before the RMS Titanic set sail on her fatal jouney across the Atlantic in 1912. The tour provides an emotional journey back to the day when 123 passengers boarded at Cobh on their hopeful voyage across the ocean. Stop for a bloody cocktail at an atmospheric bar before the end of your tour.
