“International Quilt Festival of Ireland 2012 was disappointing”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

I attended the International Quilt Festival at the University with a large group of quilters who spent three days at various events on campus. Many of us were lost a great deal of the time. The organizers of the quilt festival claimed that the University wouldn't let them post additional signs, but the buildings were hard to find. The quilts were in various buildings throughout the campus, and I missed a lot of them. The castle was the best building, and that's where the Quilt Garden quilts were displayed. The quilts in other buildings were in classrooms and various halls that were hard to find. Classes with quilting instructors were canceled without notice by the quilt festival organizers. There were surprisingly few vendors at the quilt festival. I would attend the 2013 quilt festival with caution.

“Riverside walk through the University”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Beautiful campus merging old and new buildings. Situated along the river, it's perfect for a ramble that brings you into the heart of the city. Worth a look.

“Cool campus”

This is a great campus with lots of green areas and old building. The main part is an old castle that make this place magic.
