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

I walked around the university campus for a couple of hours one morning. It reminded me of Duke University, but a little more compact and hilly. I especially appreciated the way that the modern buildings blended into the traditional architecture. I would recommend visiting the art gallery on campus as well as the lovely chapel with beautiful stained glass and a very interested mosaic floor.

The architecture of this Victorian style university is magnificent.
The old quadrangular blends in with the new modern Boole library.
Also, you can visit the Gluxman Gallery which houses some fine works of art.
You can also find plenty of restaurants on the campus where food is reasonably priced if your on a budget.
All in all, if you are visiting Cork, I would highly recommend a visit to this university. Ask for directions to the stone corridor.

Say what you will about UCC but as a big fan of the Harry Potter books what I enjoyed most was its uncanny likeness to the halls of Hogwarts. I had a very enjoyable afternoon wondering around the grounds surrounded by beautiful architecture. Next time I'll be bringing a few props with me to stage a couple of Hogwarts moments of my own!
