COBH’S DEEP WATER QUAY
Cobh has seen famine ships and transportation ships come and go over the years but now the town’s Deepwater Quay welcomes luxury liners on cruises around Europe.
Buses and taxis were coming and going when I called there today to see the Crown Princess, one of many to visit this summer. Check out the schedule at www.visitcobh.com and perhaps add a visit to see a liner to your activities in the East Cork area. The quay is just a few minutes from the Fota Wildlife Park and indeed not much longer from the East Cork Parkway that links the city and Youghal.
The Princess line makes many of these calls and their Crown Princess is certainly a large and impressive ship and is due again on the 12th of August. Oh, and by the way, even if there is no liner in, Cobh has a string of attractions to keep you busy, including a cruise of Cork Harbour. I must try that next time.
