Owner description: 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

“Stones and art gallery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

UCU is definitely worth an afternoon of browsing. The main buildings have a lovely display of ohm stones and the art gallery in the grounds always has interesting things on.

Don't miss the main gate and the river. The original building is beautiful. A great place to walk through.

“A lovely place to stroll - especially on Sunday's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

We wandered over through the main gate on Western Road, over a lovely small river and into the beautiful grounds. We were free to enter the buildings, including the Hall in the Quad. There was a fascinating display of inscribed stones with early Celtic writing and alphabet.

On leaving the Uni we picked up on one of the Cork City walks, along the River Lee back to the city centre.

I didn't get to take an actual tour of the campus, but it certainly made for a beautiful walk between my B&B and the city center.
