We’ve been to Cobh many times and have never been lucky enough to be there when this museum was open – but our luck was in on Monday of this week! It opens at 11 a.m. for those planning a visit. Entry fee is €4, which is very reasonable considering the wealth of history behind those doors. It’s a charming... More

From the waterfront the deconsecrated former Presbyterian Church which houses the museum looked wonderful. With its eye-catching red door, fine stonework and noteworthy windows, the facade is attractive. Ascending the steps it was a little disappointing to discover that we were too early in the season for a visit, as it reopens in April. Perhaps next time!

We found this small museum very interesting and full of facts we were unaware of. It focuses on emigration and was particularly interesting to us as we have family who were part of that. It helped us understand some of the famine houses and the stories we heard later in our travels.

This museum focuses on emigration from Ireland to the USA, Canada and Australia. Would especially be interesting for citizens of those countries whose ancestors come from Ireland. You can also check the records here and find out a bit more of your family history.

This is a small local museum, with info on the Lusitania, which sunk offshore, as well as other local history. It's inexpensive and worth a visit if you're in Cobh.

Very small museum but plenty of local history. An interesting exhibition about Irish dance is on for the season. The entrance fee is very small and the local man working there that day was clearly very knowledgeable about all the exhibits. Well worth a look.

Housed in an old Church the building has more of a story to tell. There is not much to see but the entry fee is only a few Euros. There are some interesting artifacts but make this part of a multi -stop tour as opposed to an afternoon activity.I was interested in the old uniforms. The history of the Church... More

THis is a tiny place and costs only 2 euros so don't get too excited, but it was worth the cost and the time to view a nice little collection of local memorabilia.
