Cork (Cobh) port information

Ticketautomat GFDL

Cork is the next largest city in the Island after Dublin and Belfast.   Like many of the cities with long histories, it is well up river.   No doubt they established it at the first place it was possible to ford the river at low tide.   Although Cork does have a small port, the bigger ships use Cobh (a bit like Tilbury and London).   Unlike Tilbury, Cobh (pronounced COVE) is a pretty place, although Cork is the one with the famous places.  Cobh is situated in a large natural harbour, one of the best natural harbours in the world.  Known as Queenstown until 1922, it was the departure point for Irish emigrants to America and was the last port of call of the Titanic.
