Step Into the Past at the Heritage Centre

In a stunning redbrick Victorian building, shared with Cobh train station, is the Heritage Centre. Whether you’re interested in learning about Cobh’s, Ireland’s or your own history, this is where your lesson begins.

The center is housed in the former Victorian railway station, which was built in 1859 and served as a gateway for emigrants leaving Ireland for new lives in America and elsewhere. Today, the station has been beautifully restored and transformed into a modern museum that showcases the history of Cobh and the many people who passed through the station over the years.

Visitors to the Heritage Centre can explore a range of exhibits that cover everything from the Titanic’s fateful journey to the history of Irish immigration. The museum also includes a genealogy center where visitors can trace their family history and learn about their ancestors’ lives.

One of the highlights of the Cobh Heritage Centre is the Queenstown Story exhibit, which tells the story of the town’s role as the last port of call for the ill-fated Titanic. The exhibit includes fascinating artifacts and personal stories that bring the tragedy to life.

Overall, the Cobh Heritage Centre is a must-see attraction for anyone interested in history, genealogy, or Irish culture. With its beautifully restored building and engaging exhibits, it offers a unique and unforgettable experience that visitors of all ages will enjoy.

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for The Cobh Heritage Vintage Era team, who dress up in vintage garb to recreate the fashions in Titanic-era Cobh. You might even grab an Insta-worthy selfie!
