Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Province of Munster / County Cork / Cork / University College Cork (UCC)
Stroll among old buildings and vibrant, well-kept grounds and gardens, and take in the history of University College Cork (UCC). Find the visitor center to pick up an audio guide, which will take you to some of the most notable spots on campus. Visit the president's garden, a formerly private space now open to all, which contains mature oaks and giant redwoods, which were planted in the 1840s at the college's inception. Walk the stone corridor and examine the Ogham stones—a series of grave markers for prominent Celtic tribespeople dating from the second or third century. Explore the Crawford observatory, which contains an equatorial telescope, a transit telescope, and a siderostatic telescope.

University College Cork (UCC) reviews
Beautiful campus, just to walk around, but they also organise guided tours, which are really interesting. Tours start at the visitors center.

Small Campus with lovely building. With leaves turning colourful now, the buildings looked beautiful. Nice for a walk and quick visit.

Struggled a bit to find main entrance and to find some parking Once we did the walk around was very pleasant. Loved the buildings and the gardens in particular were really impressive. It certainly created a peaceful setting and seemed Ideal for a learning facility. There was an on site cafe as well as a few pop up stalls near to cafe It was worth spending some time walking around the grounds
A little oasis of calm within the city. Beautiful gardens, historic buildings , cafés, art gallery and standing stone collection. Well worth a visit. Paid parking available nearby.
The beautiful UCC campus is stunning, more so when the day nears its end and beautiful man-made embers illuminate the quad and other locations in what is one of the safest and most sustainability-forward tertiary institution in the world.
UCC is one of the most beautiful and accessible campuses that I have ever visited. UCC, if not the first, is one of the first to have a green campus. Not to mention the historic Mardyke Arena UCC ☠️🇮🇪☠️ and their sports programs.
Great university to work with good options for research and development for postgraduate students. A good place to live with relatively cheaper accomodation compared to Dublin. Good connectivity to Dublin with lot of bus services
