St Colman’s Cathedral in Cobh, Ireland

St Colman’s Cathedral totally dominates the skyline in Cobh, in Ireland.

We recently visited Cork in Ireland for a long wekend. On our last visit, some years ago, we explored Kinsale and Charles Fort. This time we decided to investigate the little town of Cobh (pronounced like Cove).

Located on the Great Island in Cork Harbour, the town is a fascinating place with some interesting history. Actually we found it interesting enough to visit two days in a row. After all it’s only 20 minutes drive from Glanmire, where we stayed.

While we were there we visited Spike Island (more to come on that trip). As we returned across Cork Harbour, this view of Cobh greeted us, with the town dominated by St Colman’s Cathedral.
