Directions to the car park in Cobh courtesy of Bryno on the TA Ireland forum.

Directions to Cobh Free Car park from Fota. (total drive time 15 - 20 mins)

Drive out the Fota gate and turn right, over the bridge veering right, you will now have the sea on your right hand side for most of the journey. Drive about 10 minutes. As you approach Cobh look for the 'Great Gas' Petrol station on your left. Keep driving on this road for another 2 mins, look out for a green sign on your left 'Ringlee House - pre school', you will be taking the next right turn in less than a minute.

This right turn is signposted 'Free town car park'. When you turn do NOT follow the road veering around left as this is for coach parking, instead proceed with caution (you do not have right of way) straight ahead onto a small railway bridge and drive down towards the water. Keep driving, keeping the harbour to your right, you are now approaching the car park. Drive as far up to the top of the car park until you find a space to park

Once parked, continue walking in the same direction with harbour on your right and this will take you right to the Cobh Heritage Centre.

The car park is free and safe, but as in any area do not leave items of value visible in the car.

Also from the same forum good coverage of Beara.

Perhaps we should form a travel agency called Bob 'n' Tony! (It's not advertising if we haven't done it, is it?) You two are my go-to guys for so much!

Thanks a million, guys, and I'm sure I will be back with more questions soon.....
