Very lovely college, well worth a visit. Several old buildings designed by the same person who did the Cork Gaol and Imperial Hotel. Nice exhibit of Ogham stones.

UCC is a fantastic place for an after dinner walk. The grounds are beautifully maintained and very peaceful. There are several nice sculptures around the campus.

I had a lovely walk around the campus during my morning stroll. A friend had recommended it as a nice, relaxing place to see. I wouldn't consider it an attraction, but certainly something to see.

unless you have a guide or a student, there's not much to see on your own. Visitor's Center was small and disappointing.

Take a walk around this gothic campus. We went on a rare sunny day and the blue sky contrast with the green grass, landscaping and grey buildings was quite breathtaking. Not a huge campus so it won't take all afternoon but it surewasbeautiful

I loved the walk from the city centre to the campus which is mostly uphill so gives you a good appetite!! As classes were over, the campus was peaceful and easy to navigate. It is tastefully laid out and the newer buildings blend well with...More

We ended up staying just outside the university and took a quick tour of the campus. If you have some time and are in the area, it is a really pretty campus.

Cork is the biggest, so there would be the most to do and see. I would recommend skipping Limerick and going to county Kerry instead, specifically Killarney. Far more to see and do and a lot more beautiful. This is where I... More
