This is in a church that opened in 1854. I went there because my great grandmother left from Cobh in 1855. It's very small but has some interesting displays.

Dusty museum that housed in a former church building that since has seen many uses. Lots of antique communications in the form of personal letters and publications from the time.

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...More

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.
