“Titanic & Whiskey”
Visit the colourful coastal town of Cobh and the final place of departure of the Titanic. Learn about the heritage and legends of Jameson Whiskey at the Jameson Distillery in Midleton.
Cobh is a charming seaside town in County Cork that became an embarkation point during Ireland’s mass emigrations. If you claim Irish descent, then there is a good chance that your ancestors left Ireland through Cobh. A sculpture at the port of Cobh is in honor of Annie Moore and her brothers, who were the first Irish immigrants to be processed at Ellis Island. It is also known as the Titanic’s last port of call in 1912. Visit the Titanic Experience to discover her story through the eyes of the passengers and the strong Irish links to Titanic.
The Jameson Experience, Midleton, is an Irish whiskey museum and visitor centre in County Cork. Take a leap through history, step through the doors and you’ll step back in time. Carts are piled high with sacks of grain and you can smell the malted barley drying in closed kilns. Learn about “the angel’s share” (the amount of alcohol that evaporates from the cask during maturation) and the fascinating story behind the creation of one of the most well-known Irish whiskeys in the world. Enjoy a whiskey tasting, that is rewarded with an Irish Whiskey Taster Certificate. For history and whiskey enthusiasts alike, the Old Midleton Distillery is not to be missed.
