golfnut, Cobh (Irish for cove) was the original name of the port. Ireland was an English colony until the early 20th century, the name was changed to Queenstown in 1850 in honour of Queen Victoria's visit. In 1920, after the formation of the Irish Free State, the name was changed back to the Irish one. So the name Queenstown is associated with the Titanic era.
Cobh also has an association with the Lusitania.
