I love Cobh! Beautiful harbour town in County Cork that was originally called Cove (The Cove of Cork). After a visit from Queen Victoria in 1850 it was renamed Queenstown until 1920 when, after the the foundation of the Irish Free State, it was renamed Cove but in the Irish spelling Cobh. As Queenstown Cobh was the last place the Titanic sailed from on her fateful voyage in April 1912 and the White Star Line's offices in Cobh are now a museum to the Titanic. Part of the original pier where Irish migrants boarded boats to carry them out to the Titanic, which was moored at the mouth of the harbour, still stands.
