Full description
The Cobh Cultural Tour is a combination tour that includes the Titanic Trail Guided Walking Tour of Cobh and a self-guided visit to the Queenstown Story Heritage Center. Combining both of these attractions will provide a unique insight into the broad maritime, social and military heritage of one of the most historical towns in Ireland.

Places and stories closely associated with events such as the final departure of Titanic's last passengers, the tide of emigration from Ireland and the sinking of the Lusitania will all be explored and explained from the fascinating doctoral level research of Michael Martin, author and creator of the tour.

The Queenstown Story Heritage Center will trace the history of emigration to North America, the military presence in the harbor during the First World War, age of the great transatlantic liners and the dark period of 'convict' transportation to Australia can be visited anytime between 10:00 and 16:00.
