The Experience

On April 11th 1912, 123 passengers came to the busy harbour town of Queenstown (now known as Cobh), to board Titanic bound for New York.
Four days later they would find themselves fighting for their lives in one of the worlds most tragic maritime disasters.
With knowledgeable guides and immersive audio visual displays, we will take you on a unique and emotive journey back in time.

WHAT OUR HAPPY VISITORS SAY

Highly recommend a visit, the real link with the Titanic is palpable. This is the last point from which people boarded the tenders and made their way to the ship. Love the ticket you receive on entering the museum, it’s history and it’s outcome at the end of the tour. An absolute must of a stop.

Another Titanic experience.

TripAdvisor

This was another angle to the Titanic story for us. We had been to Halifax in Nova Scotia to see the Titanic museum there and to the Titanic experience in Belfast where she was built. Cobh (previously known as Queenstown) was the final pick-up before she set off on her ill-fated voyage. The experience is in the old White Star line offices and embarkation jetty and your entry ticket is given in the name as one of the passengers boarding at Cobh- you find out your fate at the end of the tour. The guide was excellent and led us around the audio- visual presentations, seeing the cabins of the different classes and learning the stories of the embarking passengers including your character.
It was a brilliant but chastening experience of the demise of such a magnificent ship.
