A very nice lady called Debbie advised us on how to spend our day in Cobh, with advice on better parking spots, offers in... More

This is a must, tho' avoid when full. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Lovely 'Irish' goods for people visiting from abroad. Bring your purse - not one to 'peruse'..you'll buy!! Enjoy!
