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'm often on campus and the views never get old. Such a good atmosphere around especially during various college related events. Tours are offered and the Honan Chapel looks fab although I've yet to manage to make it in myself! Would definitely recommend popping in for a while and walking round the presidents garden etc if you were in the city!

My daughter recently started in UCC and the Sunday before hand we took a stroll around so she could find her way around when she started. The Quad and surrounding building was impressive, there are also modern buildings and it was hard for us to imagine it a bustling place. She has since started and she is finding it fantastic. If you are looking for a lovely stroll, grounds of UCC are vast and impressive
