Visit Cobh during Irish Open Golf

Golfing enthusiasts should make the short trip to Cobh during their stay in Cork while visiting the Irish Open at Fota this June. Less than ten minutes from Fota by road or rail, Cobh is everything that is expected from a seaside town nestled on the shores of one of the world's finest natural harbours.  
But Cobh is so much more. Cobh's story is entwined with world history – the Titanic, Lusitania and the emigration of so many Irish people from the town's quays have seen to this. The unique architecture, piers and buildings of Cobh have changed little since the era of the Titanic.The magnificent St. Colman's Cathedral perched on the hillside, brightly painted houses, stunning flower displays, non stop activity on the water, waterside parks, scenic walks or even a boat trip to Spike Island make for a relaxed visit. Cobh's waterside hotels, restaurants, cafés and cosy pubs satisfy every taste.
Cobh's world class tourist activities and attractions make it an absolute "must see" destination for anyone visiting the Irish Open. 
A top ten finalist in the Fáilte Ireland Tourism Towns competition in 2013 and consistently reaching the top tier of the National Tidy Towns competition Cobh excels at welcoming visitors. 
Limited accommodation is still available in some of Cobh's many B&B's, but even for people staying in Cork city and east Cork, Cobh is a convenient and interesting place to visit. For accommodation options please click here
