Cobh Lodge RoomNeptune Lodge No. 190 Cobh was constituted in 1846, and met in various locations in this port town including at the Courthouse, Scott’s Square. We moved to our current premises at King’s Terrace in 1918, at the end of the First World War. Our lodge room was originally the basement of St Mary’s C.I. Parochial Hall, and in an interesting reversal of the usual tradition, meetings are held in the lower room, while installation dinners were formerly served in the upper room, which doubled as a badminton hall until the 1960s.

Ireland’s oldest Maritime Lodge, Neptune No. 190 granted Honorary Membership to (Masonic) US servicemen based in Cork Harbour during the 1914-18 First World War.

We especially welcome all Masonic seafarers to visit us when in port, while all visiting brethren are assured of a warm and fraternal welcome.
