      Hi all -

      I will be at Cobh Port for a day. Are there things to do within walking distance or should I travel out of the area?

    • Shore Excursions from Cobh

      by fideauxdon Online Now May 17, 2011 at 7:40 AM

      We are taking a Transatlantic Cruise next April, and one of the ports visited is Cobh. We are looking for a one day tour of the area, including Kinsale and Blarney Castle. One company, eCoach.IE offers a tour that looks good and is reasonably priced. Can you tell me anything about this company?
      Altertnatively, are there other tour companies that you would recommend?

      I have a photo of a statue inside St Colman's but I am not certain who it is? Looks like it could be St. Mary, however it may be St. Colman. Any help?

    • Finding 1 Old Street in Cobh

      by walshr Online Now May 18, 2007 at 11:44 AM

      Can anyone tell me if there still is an Old Street in Cobh? My relatives lived there in 1889 and a friend will be over in Cork next week. They offered to take a photo of the address, but I can't find 1 Old Street on any map.
