Located twenty minutes from Cork, the picturesque small town of Cobh offers a unique insight into Irish history. Over 2.5 million adults and children departed from the ports of Cobh between 1848 and 1950, many due to the potato famine. The Cobh Heritage Center offers the unique opportunity to understand this historical Irish phenomenon, and relive the experience of those who travelled from these ports during this key point in history.
Visitors to the Cobh Heritage Center can explore the bleak “coffin ships”, learn about the first immigrants to be processed in Ellis Island and discover their own Irish ancestry. An excellent café with friendly, helpful staff is the perfect place to relax after a visit to the Center.
