Cobh, known from 1850 until 1920 as Queenstown, is a seaport on the south coast of County Cork, Ireland. Cobh is on the south side of Great Island in Cork Harbour and is home to Ireland's only dedicated cruise terminal.
Cobh is a pleasant waterside town, with brightly coloured houses where its streets climb the steep slope of a hill, the top of which is crowned by the imposing Cobh Cathedral, St. Coleman's Cathedral with its carillon of 47 bells. East Corks most impressive Cathedral.

No.168 approaches Little Island with the 1120 Cork to Cobh on the 14th April 1995. The regular services on the Cobh branch made it a good place to photograph whilst travelling by train.
This picture sums up the charm of Irish railways in the 1990s. Steam heated stock, jointed track, diesel locos. No. 168 was at this stage the last loco to carry the CIE orange and black livery.

Cobh is a sheltered seaport town on the south coast of County Cork, Ireland with a population of around 13,000 inhabitants.
The locality, which had had several different Irish-language names, was first referred to as Cove ("The Cove of Cork") in 1750. It was renamed Queenstown in 1849 to commemorate a visit by Queen Victoria and so remained until the name Cobh (closer to the Irish spelling) was restored in 1922 with the foundation of the Irish Free State.
Cobh is located on the south shore of the Great Island in Cork Harbour, (reputed to be the second largest natural harbour in the world), on south-facing slopes overlooking the entrance to the harbour. Facing the town of Cobh are Spike Island and Haulbowline Island. On a high point in the town stands the Cobh Cathedral, St. Colman's, seat of the diocese of Cloyne.
In Cobh, we went to the Heritage Center. This is an image of one of the many ships that sailed to the USA from Ireland.
We love graveyards. There's something about the silence they bring and the things they whisper so eloquently in their silence.
This image was taken on a perfect afternoon and was made possible ONLY because our flickr friend, John, got us there.
This image is dedicated to you, John. I can only hope it brings you a small measure of the pleasure you gave us today.
Cheers, my friend.
Cobh harbour, midday light, 10mm. lens + polariser, finding a functioning ATM machine was a challenge here, as was finding a public bathroom that did not require exact change in coins to use their facilities. Other than that it was pretty and photogenic.
Cobh with Spike Island in the foreground. You can see the tops of the bunkers and underground buildings that were utilized as a prison on Spike Island until a few years ago. This shot was taken from Camden Fort in Crosshaven.
