Cobh (pronounced Cove) is an easy day trip from Cork and is famous for being the last port of call for the Titanic before she departed on her fateful maiden voyage across the Atlantic. We hopped on the train and in about 30 minutes were deposited at the Cobh train station.Cobh Heritage Center.
We took a moment to admire the colorful homes stacked on the hill from a different angle. It looked like Cobh's answer to the 'Painted Ladies' of San Francisco.
We descended the footpath in front of the church down to the harbour front. Here we spotted signs of Cobh's place in history with references to the Titanic and other 'floating palaces' on the outside of local pubs.
Our eye was drawn to Market House with the spire of St. Colman's sitting immediately above it.
