Cork Port is located in the second largest natural deep water harbour in the world, handling a wide variety of traffic and attracting vessels in all shapes and sizes.
Included here are a selection of aerial pictures showing a cross section of visitors to the port, ranging from commercial shipping to leisure craft and military ships, which is unsurprising given that the navy is headquatered at Haulbowline, opposite Cobh within the harbour. There is also an extensive record of cruise liners as these have become a regular feature of harbour life, not just in Cork but all 'round the coast.

Ships featured here include USS Leyte Gulf (CG-55) a Ticonderoga-class missile cruiser during a courtesy visit at Cobh deepwater quay ( 2014 ) and previously ' Vive Admiral Kulakov ' a Russian navy destroyer that also paid a courtesy call while en route home to her Northern Fleet base at Severomorsk ( 2012 ).
Another notable recent visitor was the Astrid, a Dutch sail training vessel that unfortunately sank while routing to Kinsale from Cork in August 2013. All crew were successfully rescued without injuries but the ship itself having been raised was then scrapped following an assessment that the ship was damaged beyond repair.
While Cork Harbour traffic is well represented here, the aerial collection also covers shipping movements from Dublin and other locations around the country.
