Overview

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 really enjoyed our walk around this beautiful campus. Plenty to see on the way - there were different plaques, etc. The only thing was, there was some scaffolding and parts were blocked off with no map nearby to help.

With my elderly mother we managed to park in a car park with the barriers up and walk through campus with little difficulty. The campus is a small bit unsightly at the moment due to construction but otherwise very interesting

Many vistas. Enter the buildings and walk down the halls. One building, the one that has the Visitors' Center, has a wonderful collection of ancient inscribed Irish stones along the interior walkway.
