History Of Cobh

Commanding panoramic views of one of the finest natural harbours in the world, the tiny fishing village of Cobh (the cove of Cork) was virtually unknown up to the early 1800s. With the advent of the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars (1792-1815), Cork Harbour became an important refueling and assembly point for British naval and commercial ships. Up to 300 ships at a time could be seen at anchor in the waters of Cobh!
