Queenstown, formerly Cove of Cork, is a seaport on the south shore of Great Island, 14 miles S.E. of Cork. Here the principal ocean-going steamers call on departure for or arrival from America. The present name was given on the occasion of the Queen's visit in 1849. An excellent harbour, with an area of eight square miles, is strongly defended by forts and batteries.

“If you would have light and heat, why then are you not more in the sunshine? If you would have more of that grace which flows from Christ, why are you not more with Christ for it?”
–Isaac Ambrose, Looking Unto Jesus
