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

Take a wander through this campus, and you will not be disappointed. Very spacious campus , combining beautiful buildings and beautiful natural surroundings! The quad building is very beauitful , walking through here is a very unique experience. The grounds are also very beautiful. Lovely green grass, trees and birds singing. Fantastic coffee too served on the campus! Such a treat for the senses!!

Stopped here in August, it is a beautiful campus just to walk around . It is on the Hop On Hop Off bus tour, so easy to get to.

We walked through the campus nearly every day from the B&B (Mariaville House) to downtown Cork City. Lovely campus, inviting new students our first day.

Huge stones with some of the first pre-historic writing on display. Artwork my son was posing with. Great area to walk!

A lovely location for a Sunday stroll and sit on a bench at the quadrangle and soak up the late summer sunshine.

We only had time at the end of our stay for a short walk in the beautiful gardens, Very pleasant. We hope to go back and spend more time there we would like to see the Stones in more detail.
