Welcome to Cobh
Cobh (An Cóbh) is a seaport on the south of Cork.
The locality, which had had several different Irish-language names, was first referred to as Cove ("the Cove of Cork") in 1750. It was renamed Queenstown in 1849 to commemorate a visit by Victoria of the United Kingdom and so remained until the name Cobh (closer to the Irish spelling) was restored in 1922 with the foundation of the Irish Free State.
On its highest point stands the Cobh Cathedral, St. Colman's, seat of the diocese of Cloyne.
Cobh was the departure point for 2.5 million of the six million Irish people who emigrated to North America between 1848 and 1950.
