My first trip in Irland, in Cobh, the city where Titanic stopped before going directly into the iceberg! A nice town, colored and tidy with the St Colman’s Cathedral overlooking the sea! I didn’t go to the Titanic museum, too simple and predicted, better going on the amazing Spike’s Island. It reminds (even if I ve never been)) the Alcatraz island. The fort Mitchel built on it take the major part of the area of the Island.
The fort was originally known as Fort Westmoreland. It was a Royal Navy base (before Irish independence) and later a prison.
An old irish teacher guided us around its walls but I can remember just a few words of the 40 minutes in which he talked with an obscure irish accent.
