Q-ships (heavily armed merchant ships with concealed weaponry, designed to lure submarines into making surface attacks) were called Q-ships precisely because many were, in fact, fitted-out in Queenstown. Cobh is on the south side of Great Island in Cork Harbour and is home to Ireland's only dedicated cruise terminal. Tourism in the area draws on the maritime and emigration legacy of the town.

John kindly let me check in early and gave me helpful tips on the area (Seasalt is a lovely cafe just around the corner). Can't beat the location and the price was very reasonable compared to other places. Room was as described. The only thing that made the stag slightly less…
