travel42 Professional Cruise Port of Call Review
Set on an island in Cork Harbor, on the country's south coast, Cobh was Ireland's main port of emigration in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The first transatlantic steamship sailed from there in 1838. Cobh was also the last port of call of the Titanic
and the place where survivors of the Lusitania
were taken ashore. It was once known as Queenstown in honor of a visit by Queen Victoria in 1849, but it reverted to its original Irish name of Cobh (pronounced ‘cove') in 1922.
