“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

The description on the City Guide Map sounded good implying lots of historical information, but in reality it's just a model of the city (although a very good model) and a very small picture gallery, so nothing of interest to me.

“3D map of city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Cork's Vision Centre is situated in a former quaint little church in the heart of the medieval city.. Art displays are regularly displayed and changed so that each visit to the gallery may be a different experience. Varying themes such as Rory Gallagher or 9/11 have been recent presentations. One constant display in the centre is a 3D Map of the city which is well worth visiting.

“Wedding Venue”

Our friends recently had a civil ceremony here and it was an ideal place for a small crowd and a great conversation piece!

“Expected much more....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2011

The photography exposition is sort of nice, but the pictures are hung very low and it might have helped is the underscript would be placed above the pictures in this case. The model of Cork... could use a bit more explanatory texts

I expected to learn about Cork here... no such luck!
