Cobh

Things to do at Cobh Port?

Hi all -

I will be at Cobh Port for a day. Are there things to do within walking distance or should I travel out of the area?

Thanks for any responses.

Laura

As with your other posts, look at the VT Cobh travel guide for what there is to see and do locally:

Certainly enough for a day's exploration, imo.

There is a fair bit to do in Cobh but assuming you are on a Cruise and not wanting the organised tours you can get into Cork city by train, Blarney is a bus ride and back from the city.
From Cobh Fota is a taxi ride and back either the House and Gardens or Wildlife park http://www.fotahouse.com/ http://www.fotawildlife.ie/ there tend to be groups get together for their own taxi trip to Kinsale over the passage west ferry or via the city.

Thanks, Tony. We will be on a cruise. If we can get to other locations on our own without spending a fortune, we are open to that as well. On our last cruise (NY to Quebec and back down to NY through different ports), all of our time was spent walking. We had a blast without spending $$$.

If you want to keep costs down a little you will get a better lunch in the Commodore across from the port at a lower price than the regular lunch spots the Quays or the Titanic you might even get up to their roof top garden for a vantage point view. St Colmans Cathedral is also a regular stop when we get down there, not religious just a really special building.
