The heritage town of Cobh dominates Cork Harbour and has experienced invasion, emigration, transportation and a wealth of maritime adventure. Cobh was the last Irish soil that many millions of Irish had under their feet before emigrating to America in the 19th and 20th Century. The last port of call for the ill-fated S.S. Titanic before it set sail to its tragic end.
