COBH-WHITEPOINT QUAYSIDE WALK
There is something different about walking near water.
I tried it out today in Cobh and enjoyed it. Here you may start by the Heritage Centre and stroll about a mile or so out to Whitepoint from where there is a fine view of the town.
If coming from the city make for the well signposted free Town Car Park and go east as far as you can before parking. There is a good path, with plenty of seats, most of the way.
When your reach the point, it is probably best to turn back and take in the view of the town and cathedral. On your right you can see the Naval base at Haulbowline and further to the east the stacks of the generating station in Aghada.
On returning to the starting point, there is much more to see and do and Cobh, including the Heritage Centre and its cafe, the famous cathedral, a couple of art galleries, numerous restaurants and cafes and, every Friday, there is a Farmers Market. We’ll be filling in on these in due course.
