University College Cork is one of Ireland’s most prestigious universities. It boasts a vibrant, modern campus with a student experience second to none in Ireland. A learning community where the student is at the heart of everything and the special relationship between student and lecturer is primary to our unique ethos. The campus is located a mere ten minutes walk from the heart of Cork city, a former European Capital of Culture. Cork is listed as a top ten location in the Lonely Planet guide which states it “has always had an unshakeable self-confidence and innate sense of pride”, a description which is equally applicable to the University itself

We had a lovely walk around the campus. Stunning buildings and beautifully kept grounds. Also made some purchases in the Glucksman gallery gift shop.

A lovely campus to wander around in. There is a great "feel" to this place. It is quite a large campus, yet compact enough to stroll around at a leisurely pace taking in the views and sights. Some lovely old buildings here as well as...More
