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

JP Quinn gave an outstanding tour of UCC through the visitors office on a Saturday afternoon. Truly outstanding, informative....Boolean algebra so fascinating ...I have imprinted like a goose on the 0-1 algebra theory. Historical, relevant, educational.

Well worth visiting. For a relatively new university, the campus grounds were beautifully kept, with an abundance of flower beds. The stream that one crosses when entering at the main entrance addes a lovely touch.

I enjoyed walking around the campus and visiting some of the buildings. I had lunch in the student cafeteria and saw a display in the Library.

University College Cork or UCC is particularly lovely in summertime when it's possible to enjoy walking through its beautiful grounds. UCC is an historic campus which is as lovely as those in Oxford or Cambridge. Founded in 1845, it was one of the Queen's colleges...More
