Cobh, Ireland is a beautiful little port in South,Central Ireland. The ship docks right in the center of the town unlike many of the industrial ports in Europe. You literally walk off the ship and right into this quaint town filled with shops, pubs, and restaurants. After our group visited the Titanic Experience (Cobh was the ill-fated ship’s last stop) our group hiked about town looking for some authentic Irish food. Unfortunately for us, we didn’t realize that one of the town’s best restaurants was about 100 yards from the ship, but the extra steps gave us a chance to explore this gem of a place more. The Quay’s Restaurant and Bar fed us extremely well. The food was excellent and the views are not to be missed.
After a group pow-wow, it was decided that our two lady friends would venture by train to Cork, the 2 male friend would return to the ship for drinks and naps, and Mr. & Mrs. Met would venture about town for a while longer. We walked up the hill to visit Colmon’s Cathedral. From there you have a tremendous view of the town, harbor, and ship docked below. It was well worth the hike and is highly recommended when you visit.
Our standing 7:30 dinner reservations in the Coral Dining Room allowed us to meet what would be our new best friends for dinner: Servers Siti and Igor. We really hit it right off the bat when we sat down and we requested they be our servers for the rest of our cruise when we ate in the main dining room. Dinner was great as usual and we then retreated to the Princess Theatre to hear our friend, comedian George Casey, for his PG rated show. He was tremendously funny
