Cobh Heritage Centre - Discover the Queenstown Story at Cobh Heritage Centre - the story of emigration, Convict Ships & Coffin Ships. The Queenstown Story is a self-guided tour relaying the tales of Emigration to North America, transportation of Convicts to Australia, the story of the Irish indentured servants in the West Indies and, of course, the Titanic and the Lusitania disasters. This is a moving, educational, interesting and evocative exhibition - which enables you to ‘walk in the footsteps of our ancestors’ who left these shores and whose last sight of Ireland was the town of Cobh. The exhibition is full of stories and history and gives visitors the opportunity to explore our rich historic past and engage with the stories told.
Fota House, Arboretum & Gardens - Fota House is Ireland’s finest example of the Great Country House where grand opulent surrounding of the gentry are contrasted with the servant’s wing. When you take this guided tour, you will discover fascinating insights into the contrasting lives of the masters of a former time, and their servants, in the original surroundings that shaped their worlds. Restored and conserved by the Irish Heritage Trust, public guided tours of the House run regularly from April to September. Group tours and learning visits available all year. Fota House hosts monthly cultural events, including seasonal offerings at Christmas and Easter. When exploring the House, a visit or guided tour of the award winning Victorian Working Garden is a must! Special corporate events and weddings are greatly enhanced by the spectacular surroundings. Fota Arboretum and formal Gardens are cared for by the OPW.
