This fascinating, half-day tour starts with a walk around Cobh Harbour, during which you'll be accompanied by a friendly, local guide. Cobh, pronounced 'cove,' is one of the most important maritime areas in all of Ireland. You will walk the same streets and visit the very same pier from which passengers boarded the Titanic — and where Irish immigrants boarded ships for the New World. You'll view the old office buildings of the White Star and Cunard Lines before stopping at St. Colman's Cathedral — an ornately detailed neo-Gothic building with spires you can see from the bay. Built in 1868 and finally completed in 1915, this cathedral is made of granite and limestone, and features elaborate statues and stained-glass window arches. It also boasts 42 bells that ring out on special occasions. The families of departing immigrants climbed the cathedral steps for a last sight of their departing loved ones. The cathedral overlooks the doomed Titanic's final anchorage, where she laid waiting for mail and her last passengers in 1912. After the walking tour, you'll stop at a local pub to savor some Irish coffee: a magical combination of whiskey, double cream, strong black coffee and sugar. Before returning to your ship, you'll have the chance to visit the Titanic Experience Museum in the heart of Cobh. Your walking tour guide will check you in at the museum before a local guide will take you through the exhibition.
