Cobh was the departure point for 2.5 million of the six million Irish people who emigrated to North America between 1848 and 1950. On 11 April 1912 Queenstown was the final port of call for the RMS Titanic as she set out across the Atlantic on her ill-fated maiden voyage.

Cobh is a pretty town built on a steep hill on Great Island in Cork Harbour. The town’s architecture and streetscape is distinctly Victorian, with some very fine examples of Terraces and streets very much intact. St. Colman’s Cathedral dominates the town and is architecturally and spiritually moving – a must see.

For film makers, Cobh is a gem. Close to the City it could be used to replicate a Victorian English seaside resort, like Brighton, while also keeping its own Irish identity if needs be. It has an old railway station which is now a Visitor Centre and is ideal for Victorian Station scenes, plus a deepwater Cruise liner terminal immediately adjacent!

It also has its own commercial dock & across the harbour is a very industrial landscape comprising the old British naval base (still in use) and Spike Island Prison (closed), which is Ireland’s own Alcatraz!

Distance from Cork: 25 minutes
