Cobh

Evening in Cobh

Since we got the car insured I always want to drive somewhere in my free time, all places in Ireland that I like so much suddenly became easy accessable, and it feels wrong to spend free time at home from now on.

So last Friday we started weekend by driving to Cobh to have a dinner there.

It’s funny but every time I’ve been in Cobh before it was hard for me to find a place to eat there. I used to take a train to get there, usually in the morning, and all good pubs or restaurants were still closed that early.

This time we picked a restaurant in the Waters Edge hotel, there is a terrace with a nice view over the Cobh bay. We finished up pretty early but luckily were still on the road and I could take photos of a beautiful sunset )

The last photo here is Instagrammed, I just like it so decided to include it in the post. My name on Instagram is @blackiewarner, and I’m always looking for someone to follow who is into instaphotos as well )

Cobh, 2009

i decided to step away from the Russian topic for a little bit, and found my pictures from Cobh that I took in 2009 short after I arrived to Ireland.

Cobh is a small town in 20 minutes drive from Cork. Once it was called Queenstown, and it’s famous mostly because it was the last port of call for Titanic.
There is much more about this town though, for example, according to Wikipedia one of the first colonists of Ireland landed in Cork Harbour over 1000 years BC, that must have been somewhere around Cobh.

But nevertheless, a lot in the town is dedicated to Titanic and to the memory of it’s passengers. In the train station building there is a very interesting museum, and there are also few of them around the town as well.
