Cobh and Kinsale

Packed up and moving out from Blarney we make our way to Dublin. Along the way we stop off at a place called Cobh (sounds like cove). Cobh, also known as Queenstown, is a seaport town located in County Cork. Cobh was the last port of call for the RMS Titanic before it sank in the Atlantic. One of the sites we saw was a museum about the ships that have had significant impact on Irish history.

After Cobh, and still heading to Dublin, we stopped off at another little town for lunch. Kinsale is known for it’s restaurants. We decided to try a restaurant called Fishy Fishy. We were not
disappointed. 20130613-151536.jpg
