ACET student Maria Teresa Font Amigo, gives us an account of her recent visit to the coastal town of Cobh, just outside Cork city.
“Last Saturday, I visited the seaside town of Cobh just outside Cork city by train. The train left from Cork at twelve o’clock and arrived to Cobh at half past twelve.
In Cobh, I saw the station, the Cathedral, the landscape and also I went to Titanic Experience museum and Cobh Museum. In Cobh there are museums dedicated to the Titanic and Lusitania. We saw an exhibition which was very interesting about Lusitania – A Day In May. At the moment the theme is very much involved in Lusitania as it the anniversary of the date it sank many years ago off Cobh during the 1st World War.
The weather wasn’t good on this day, because it was windy and wet but we enjoyed the experience equally. However I can advise other people to visit this town at this time the museums are filled with interesting topics. We ate in a restaurant and watched the ships in the sea. A great and relaxing day.”
