Cobh named one of the 25 most beautiful small towns in Europe


Cobh Tourism welcomes positive review from travel magnate Condé Nast

The town of Cobh has been hailed as one of the 25 most beautiful small towns in Europe by the prestigious travel publisher, Conde Nast. In an article written by travel writer Caitlin Morton on 12th June, praise is heaped upon the charm of Cobh, shining a spotlight on “its rows of candy-coloured homes along the water, and towering Cathedral standing sentry over the harbour”.
The travel review also references the growing popularity of Cobh as a port of call for Cruise liners, and highlights the historic Titanic connection for which the town is famed.
Welcoming the favourable review, Chairman of Cobh Tourism Jack Walsh said “We are always championing Cobh as a visitor destination, so to see our beautiful small town featured in a prestigious publication like Condé Nast Traveler Magazine is a fantastic endorsement. Condé Nast is globally recognised as one of the most discerning, up-to-the-minute voices in all things travel, and its recommendations are known to be very influential.”
The scenic and historic coastal town of Cobh in East Cork is, indeed, an ideal location for a staycation or day out. Easily accessible by road, rail or boat, Cobh has a unique appeal for visitors due to its scenic waterside location, attractive and well maintained townscape, fascinating history and high density of appealing visitor attractions which includes; St. Colman’s Cathedral and Carillon, Cobh Heritage Centre, Cobh Pastimes, Titanic Experience Cobh, Escapade Cobh, Ocean Escapes, Cork Harbour Boat Tours, The Sirius Art Centre, Cobh Museum, Christy’s Gift Store, Kilkenny Design, and Spike Island.
Travelling by train from Cork City (25 mins) is always a really popular option for kids, and the train also stops at the nearby Fota Wildlife Park, which is just 10 minutes from Cobh! For more information see
