Titanic Queenstown complex: Does it float my boat ?...not really
Many thousands of punts (or Euros now) has been spent on transforming the old departure point of the White Star line into a bar and a couple of restaurants.
The historical connections, as the last port of call of the ill-fated Titanic cannot be denied and it's setting on the watersedge is terrific.
We did not see the two restaurants, but the main bar itself was, if anything, a little uninspiring. Food and drink was also a tad overpriced and distinctly average.
It was only later when their website was being viewed that we appreciated the amount of effort that had been expended making elements of the bar relevant to the TItanic ship.
For example, the ceiling is supposed to replicate the ceiling of the 1st class smoking rooms (how appropriated when it is now banned from bars in Ireland !) on the Titanic.
There are also a number of relevant arefacts and records concerning the ship and its sisters, together with explanation boards by the toilets.
Worth a quick drink if you have time.
