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

Architecture and changing fall colors were amazing. We enjoyed looking a the Ogams and carved stones display.

We just returned from a long weekend in Cork to visit my daughter who is studying at UCC for this semester. What a beautiful campus! The entire weekend in Cork was fabulous (Guinness Cork Jazz Festival). The only disappointment was it was a holiday weekend (National Bank Holiday) and not much going on about campus. She just loves it there

Lovely college grounds to stroll on a nice sunny day. You can feel the history in this place as you walk through the quadrangle. It was very quiet when we visited as 'school was out' but you could just imagine the lively nature of the place during term. Worth checking out the inscribed stones in the old hallways with an ancient script called ogham.

Great architecture, buildings and surroundings.
The Park close to it it's a great place to be in.
There was lots of movement the day we arrived, multicultural day and lots of students from all around the world learning some typical Irish dances outdoors :)

I enjoyed my walk around campus and having lunch at the cafe. IIf you have a student studying there, I highly recommend the Achill House B&B across the street.
