per adult Price is AU$17

The Queenstown Story is a very emotive, interesting and educational experience. It tells the story of Cobh's history and legacy dealing with events in Irish and world history that have a close connection with Cobh. The main theme is the story of Irish Emigration, how and why it happened and how it still stirs emotion with descendants of those people. The story of how Irish men, women and children were sent as convicts to Australia and the conditions they had to endure.

Cobh has one of the finest nartural harbours in the world and therefore the exhibition has a maritime theme also and it recalls the close association between Cobh and the two great liner disasters the Titanic and the Lusitania. It is a self guided tour that has multi media and audio visual displays and is suitable for all ages. The tour lasts approx 45 minutes but one could quite easily spend a few hours soaking up all the history.

The Cobh Cultural Tour

This tour includes the Queenstown Story exhibition  above in addition to the famous Titanic Trail Walking Tour. The walking tour commences at 11am or 2pm each day and gives amazing insights into the real stories and historical environs of Cobh, tracing its buildings and monuments connecting the visitor to the underlying narrative of locations associated with Titanic. Entry to the Queenstown Story can be before or after the walking tour.
