Watching the mammoth ships navigate the harbour and dock alongside the town is a thing to behold. To put it into perspective it would have taken Sonia O’Sullivan at her fastest 47 seconds to run the 200-metre length that many of these behemoths stretch beyond. In 2018 Cobh hosted its largest liner to date, the 315-metre Meraviglia. This particular liner included a cinema, a shopping district and a waterpark. Yes, a water park.
This summer there will be more than 75 cruise ships docking in Cobh. To see the schedule, visit the Port of Cork website.
