Cobh, County Cork

Cobh, a port town in Cork Harbour is best known to the world as the last port of call for RMS Titanic, the ill-fated luxury liner that sank on her maiden voyage across the Atlantic in 1912.

It is now best known to over 140,000 cruise visitors per year who disembark from 69 vessels as the pretty seaside town that is close to some of Ireland's best sights. It has recently been voted amongst the best cruise destinations in Europe, coming in only behind Amsterdam.

If you are visiting Cobh or Cork on a cruise or other style of holiday then let Panoramic Ireland, that's me, show you the best places to see and photograph with one of our photography tours

Here is the famous hilltop cathedral - St. Colman's looking at its best, illuminated by night lights against a deep blue, after-sunset sky.

St. Colman's Cathedral was begun in 1867 by Edward, son of famous architect Augustus Pugin. Cobh is also a good place for exploring one of Europe's best museum attractions - Spike Island, at one time the largest prison in the world.

By the way Cobh is pronounced just like the English word 'cove'.

And of course I photographed in County Cork recently for a photoshoot of Cork City for the New York Times' 36 hours in Cork feature - see here.
