Ireland | Cork | Cobh | United Kingdom | Ponds | Cathedrals | Pubs | Great Architecture | History | A Great Afternoon
We love going off the beaten path - especially when we can do it on our own. While on a cruise around the British
Isles, we stopped in Cobh, Ireland. We split our time between the port city and the nearby city of Cork. While on a
self-guided walking tour of the town, we loved the atmosphere - great architecture, lots of historical buildings and the
River Lee flowing through the city center.

Have you visited the Blarney Castle?
During our 2017 cruise around the British Isles, our ship docked in Cobh, Ireland for the day. As the home to the
Blarney Castle, the nearby city of Cork is the big tourist draw. We decided to pass on the crowds of people wanting
to kiss the Blarney stone and just wander around both Cork and Cobh on our own.
We hopped on a train to head to Cork in the morning and explored the city on foot. The weather was perfect and we
saw so much history - churches, old buildings, pubs, a university ... the list goes on and on.
We were glad that we saved some time to be able to walk around Cobh as well. Although the city is not as well
known, there is lots of history there as well. It was best known as being the last stop that the Titanic made before it's
Cobh and Cork, Ireland were both great hosts for a day of exploring!
