Titanic's 'Heartbreak Pier' in Cobh being redeveloped

Postby Andrew Clarkson » Wed Jan 10, 2018 12:33 pm

WORK HAS BEGUN on restoring a location known as ‘Heartbreak Pier’ in Cobh, Co Cork.

The site was where an estimated one million people left Ireland for the United States, the UK and Australia during the Titanic era, and it has lain in disrepair for quite a number of years.

However, in 2016 it was announced that work would begin on restoring the historic site, and it has now been confirmed that it will be completed by March 2019.

The owners, who run Titanic Experience Cobh – the site where the pier is located – say that the structure will be protected and conserved, ”whilst also becoming a leading and poignant tourist destination for Ireland’s Ancient East”.

With visitor numbers up 11% at the Titanic Experience Cobh, it’s clear there is a growing interest in this period in Irish history.
