Sirius Arts Centre

Cobh harbour has been used since perhaps 1,000 BC. It was from Cobh that most Irish emigrants departed in the mid-19th century. It was also from Cobh that Titanic departed 11th of April 1912. Some of Cobh’s streets are quite steep and there are excellent opportunities to experience vertical aspects of soundscapes. No previous experience of soundwalking needed. It is free, so just bring your ears!!

We will start the soundwalk at the Sirius Art Centre at 1.00pm sharp. We will go for a short soundwalk in Cobh (maximum 1 hour). The soundwalk will finish at the Sirius Arts Centre.

At Sirius, Softday will provide a hydrophone listening post to let you listen live to what goes on under the water in the harbour.
