Tours and Tickets by The Titanic Trail
Learn about the maritime history of Cobh during this walking tour created by historian Dr. Michael Martin. The town, which sits off the south coast of Cork, was the last port of call for the Titanic and a receiver of survivors of the Lusitania sinking. Limited to a small group, the tour has an intimate atmosphere.

Michael is a knowledgable and humorous guide and we are very happy we booked his tour. He also made special arrangements for us to visit the Queenstown experience on a day that they are usually closed.

The whole time during our tour, the guide Micheal made reference to his books constantly and where we can get information, he kept referencing his books and taking them out as if to show them off. Myself and my partner thought the tour would be more focused on the titanic, rather then him talking about his books and himself and the odd fact. And when I went to take out my phone to look at the time during the tour, he stopped and turned to me and said “are you recording me?” And then continued with “I get that a lot, people love stealing my work and have in the past” I felt quite thrown off by this as he confronted me infront of the group about simply taking my phone out of my pocket. I for one was glad when the tour ended,

We are very sorry that you have such a poor recollection of the tour that receives such positive accolades from most participants. Michael Martin rarely if ever offers his books for sale unless people request them. He refers to one of his books once during the tour while speaking about the RMS Lusitania which is very appropriate to the narrative. There is never a 'constant' referral and he would never refer to plagiarism as 'stealing'.

Lovely way to start your day in Cobh. Edward our guide and companion was excellent and gave us a great insight into the history of Cobh. Even though we had spent time in Cobh before we learnt so much. Cobh is a lovely town and even nicer when you have a great guide to show you around. The tour lasted much longer than advertised a bonus on a lovely day.

Very enjoyable and informative tour with Michael, covering lots more than the Titanic. Scenic views and easy, central location.

It was THE BEST choice to book this in Cobh. We had our lovely dog with us and wanted to do something dog-friendly. Michael is not only very good but he is also part of the whole Cobh experience. He's been involved in its story. It is definitely highly recommended!!!
