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

We visited UCC last Sunday! It is so beautiful and well maintained. Would have loved to have had more time to look around. We do plan to return in the future to do the full tour.

There is a lot of history and culture within the UCC. Very beautiful buildings and well taken care of. Go there sit in the garden and rest your mind and body.
