  • Dropped into the Glucksman for a quick viewing of the latest artworks and unfortunately was not too impressed. I love the buidling but am perplexed about the art on display. Maybe that is a good thing...  more »

  • It's a great spot, spacious and modern with a very interesting shop. Felt that the current exhibition didn't make the best of the space that was available. Lovely views from the upper floor.
  • What a great place to pass a few hours taking in the stunning artwork and then taking lunch in the gallery restaurant. Food is great and staff are very polite and extremely friendly. Highly recommended to call in. *****
  • They don't make many buildings like this in Ireland. This gallery looks great from the outside and inside. Located beside a stream in the leafy grounds of University College Cork, the straight concrete lines and curved wood exterior of the building hints at something a little more than ordinary. Inside, the large open exhibition spaces are framed by large windows and that leafy corner of Cork outside. There is a great bookshop with plenty of interesting gifts and as always the exhibition changes. Each year there is a Christmas gift fair held over the course of a weekend in November. Downstairs a lovely little bistro called Fresco that serves delicious soups, sandwiches and cooked meals. You can sit outside or inside depending on the weather.
  • Great architecture and interesting views of Cork from within.
  • Love the building and the gallery.
