Learn all about Irish emigration at the Cobh Heritage Centre, located in a cool, restored Victorian railway station. Trace your ancestors, get the lowdown on the Titanic and the Lusitania, and dive into Irish naval and military history!

This beautifully restored Victorian train station is where almost three million people started their emigration from Ireland.

The Queenstown Story at Cobh Heritage Centre tells the fascinating tale of Irish emigration, using inventive, modern displays. Find out who emigrated and why from Cork's harbour in the 17th to 20th century.

The broad sweep of history encompasses a broad range of people and destinations. Indentured servants and forced labourers sent to America and the West Indies in the 1600’s. Convicts transported to Australia and Canada. Masses driven to North America by the Great Famine, and even the 123 passengers of the Titanic who boarded the ill-fated ship right here in Cobh.
