Hot on the heels of the sell-out success of Enda Walsh's 'The Same' at the old Cork Prison, comes Corcadorca’s new show, ‘Far Away’ by Caryl Churchill, taking place on Spike Island as part of Cork Midsummer Festival 2017. This unique event begins as you board the ferry at Kennedy Pier, Cobh to journey to the island for a promenade performance of 'Far Away' with the impressive military backdrop of Fort Mitchell.
Due to ferry capacity audience numbers for 'Far Away' will be strictly limited and early booking is strongly recommended. Please note ticket price includes return ferry fare from Kennedy Pier (Cobh) to Spike Island - therefore we advise ensuring arrival no later than 9.30pm at the pier for departure. Please also note this promenade-style performance takes place outdoors, therefore appropriate clothing and footwear is advised.

At what point do you feel that spine-tingling connection? Is it as soon as you enter the original White Star Line Ticket Office where people checked in so full of excitement to be joining “The Queen of the Ocean” RMS Titanic, then the world’s largest passenger ship? Or when you look at the name on your boarding card, of a real-life passenger who embarked on what would become the most infamous maiden voyage of all time? See more.
On Great Island in Cork Harbour, Cobh’s pastel-speckled Victorian townscape climbs the hillside to the famous bells of St Colman’s Cathedral. You stroll with a local guide along the waterfront, chatting about maritime memorials like the statue of young Annie Moore and her brothers. Sailing from here, Annie was the first-ever immigrant to be processed at new Customs facilities on Ellis Island, New York, in 1893. See more.
