Cobh is a little diamond of a island town outside Cork City and well worth a visit for a variety of reasons. Aside from the fact the harbor around Cobh is the 3rd largest natural harbor on the planet there is a lot to do around the island itself. Be sure to take a harbor cruise and take in the wide eye's view of the sea and the towns around. There are many bars and cafe's and of course the massive gothic cathedral, a must see ! The people are very very friendly and love travelers.
