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

...that's how I felt when I first went to see this beautiful old place. The buildings, the arcades, the hall, the old trees, the ogham stones - just the movie actors were missing... instead many students strolling around like busy bees. Just an uncommon and magical place you should come to see.

Excellent art gallery, which is a light and airy architecturally stimulating building in itself, a joy to wander around.
The Ogham stones, in a corridor off the quad, were fascinating and worth a detour alone.
Lots more to see including a chapel, observatory, and a library named after the man for whom we would all be at a loss without on the internet - George Boole.
