There is no café inside, but the Titanic Bar sits at the front of the Experience entry to the left. The Experience is located right across from other pubs and cafes with a Papa John’s nearby.
We enjoyed ice creams from Scoops Gelato kiosk right next door, and there are benches nearby to sit on.
Nearby Places of Interest
There’s a nice park along from the Experience that you could venture to, and tours of Spike Island leave from the harbour nearby. So, depending on timing, you could do both the Island tour and the Experience in one day, with lunch in between.
Highlights of Our Visit
The audio clips of actors telling the stories of survivors and what they saw as the ship went down – goosebump inducing!
Plus finding out whether or not your passenger made it at the end too.
Anything That Could Be Better?
The tour was a little bit rushed at times. I would have liked a little longer in the first few rooms just to read and look at things on the walls.
For example, in one room, the guide pointed out that you could read what 1st Class and 3rd Class passengers ate on different menus – it was hard to read these quickly.
I would recommend the Titanic Experience Cobh for other families, and it’s a good place for mixed ages.
Very young kids might be a bit bored, but the end room has some fun things to do like see if you can guess smells, or little quiz doors to open, so I think age 5+ is probably good for this experience, where they can sit and listen for a bit and then watch and explore.
I’d give the Titanic Experience Cobh 4.5 out of 5
