Home Forums Ireland Cork Harbour Re: Re: Cork Harbour


Cobh has massive potential and should be as popular as Kinsale or Clonakilty with its superb setting and historical / Architectural heritage.Its a fantastic town with great transport links and massive tourist potential.The disasterous manage of tgheb waterfront Titanic bar and its closure is a shame as it is in a great location.The marina development would be a boost to the East Beach area of the town also.Cobh has been going through a period of decline with the literal collapse of the old dirty harbour based industries and the Spike Island prison closure ( another tourist development opportunity ).Unfortunatly if you don’t drink alcohol there is’nt a lot to do in Cobh in the evenings but that is even changing as pubs in Cobh as elsewhere are adjusting to the newer drinking culture in Ireland.Lots of opportunities forn the council to update shopfronts and derelect sites in Cobh.Remember 25/30 years ago Kinsale was in a similar position to Cobh with zero investment and derilection and has been resting on its laurels a bit too much as its main street is’nt exactly well maintained shopfront wise.
