Queenstown

Queenstown, now Cobh in Cork Harbour, was the last port of call for Titanic. The ruins of the pier where xxx passengers boarded still stands today next to the quay. The old White Star building is there too, a shell of its former self since its interior was destroyed in a fire. A short way from the quay is Pearse Square where a memorial honors those lost on Titanic.

Notably the bronze statue depicts Margaret Rice and her five sons all perished aboard Titanic.

Over 2.5 million left from Cobh to emmigrate, marking Cobh an important part of Irish heritage tours. Of all the Titanic cities, Cobh retains a stronger link to its authentic history looking most unchanged from the early 20th century.
