  • It was a very entertaining visit for me. They had live music on - a choir. It was a bit difficult to listen to the thing on exhibition though. There was also smell of cabbage coming from the kitchen. I guess it only adds to the environment of Irish culture. The on-street parking was free everywhere in town in April 2022.
  • I had low expectations, but was wonderfully surprised on the curating and interaction of this museum. Lots to learn about life in Ireland as well as the Titanic sinking and the Lusitania sinking. If you have time in Cobv and like museums, this is a good one to visit!
