Cobh and Fota Wildlife Park

June 24, 2007

This past weekend we made a visit to County Cork to check out the little village of Cobh. Kathleen has a group of students visiting, so her helper on the trip, Dana, joined us for the day. We had been to Cobh for a brief visit shortly after we moved here, but decided it was worth checking out again. We’re glad we did, as we found much more to see on this visit than the last one. Cobh (pronounced Cove) was the last port of call for the Titanic on her maiden voyage. It’s got a lovely little downtown right on the harbor, and St. Colmans Cathedral towers over the village.

Along the way we also had to make a stop at Fota Wildlife Park. This beautiful park allows you to walk amongst all kinds of wild animals, many uncaged and roaming free - giraffes, zebras, ostrich, cheetahs (caged, of course), monkeys and all kinds of birds. Check out the pics.
