Cobh

Although Cobh played a major role in the story of Irish emigration to America, most people know it as the final port of call for the ill-fated Titanic.
Venture out of the city with trips to Waterford Greenway (in Waterford), Mayfield Birds of Prey (in Kilmacthomas) and St. Mary's Church of Ireland Graveyard (in Dungarvan). There's much more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Fota Wildlife Park, step into the grandiose world of Barryscourt Castle, steep yourself in history at Rock of Cashel, and admire the landmark architecture of Fota House & Gardens.
