Town of Cóbh
Cóbh (Irish: An Cóbh) was formerly known as the Cove of Cork. In 1850 the name was changed to Queenstown to commemorate Queen Victoria's visit in the previous year. The modern name was adopted after Irish independence (1922). The name is a Gaelicisation of the English name Cove.
Cobh, known from 1850 until the late 1920s as Queenstown, is a tourist seaport town on the south coast of County Cork, Ireland. Cobh is on the south side of Great Island in Cork Harbour and is home to Ireland's only dedicated cruise terminal. Tourism in the area draws on the maritime and emigration legacy of the town - including its association with the RMS Titanic.
