The Titanic Memorial Garden is at Cove Fort, in the East of the Town, next to the the Port of Cork Harbour Control Building. The garden was funded by Cobh Town Council, Cork County Council, Fáilte Ireland, SECAD, and The County Cork Association of New York The focal point is a Glass Memorial Wall engraved with the names of the 123 passengers who boarded Titanic from Cobh, which was then known as Queenstown. In addition to the glass wall, the new garden also contains a memorial stone to the Chairman of the White Star Line, Bruce Ismay. Mr Ismay survived the Titanic in controversial circumstances by getting into a Lifeboat, he later retired to Connemara. The memorial stone was brought from his former house in the West of Ireland to Cobh to become part of the Garden. Please note that there are no parking facilities within the garden. Please park on the roadway outside which is just 100 metres from the garden and glass memorial.
