Cobh

photo

Known for being the last port of call for both the Lusitania and Titanic, Cobh seemed to me like a beautiful, but dying, seaside town. The main part of town is located on a steep hill that runs down the shoreline, with a large cathedral halfway up the hill that stands over the town. Along the shore there are numerous shops, but many are out of business and their fascades are falling apart. Nevertheless, the lodging that we wanted was full, so we ended up continuing onto Cork instead.

The photo above is actually taken just outside of Cobh, on the north side of the small island that the town sits on. The tower is one of many, many ruins that one sees as you drive around Ireland.
