  • The campus of the University College of Cork is worth seeing: cut by a branch of the River Lee, you arrive at the Main Building of the Campus, with the Boole Library and the main square. Seen in December and wonderfully decorated for the holidays had a truly fascinating.

  • Gorge campis, mani bantz wuz has here xxxx every1 float swear it's gas x
  • Great college in a fabulous location in the city centre. Wide facilities available to students and lecturers and the views in the campus are amazing, inspiring many photographers and artists alike. When one walks through the campus, one is happy to go to lectures whether it be wind rain or snow, it has a cosy, friendly atmosphere especially on clear days in May when students and visitors sit on the presidents garden. Great , inspiring lecturers and there's a range of different courses available to everyone.
  • I studied civil engineering here in 1980s but didn't really appreciate its superb ancient architecture until I got buried in modern offices as an IT geek! :) LOL
  • Beware!! Theft! Applied for a Post Grad qualification and completed the whole process, paid 50 euros and after all was said and done, I was notified that my application was after the closing date. They did not state this anywhere while I was applying and they still took my money.
  • Is this the most beautiful university campus in Ireland? It surpasses the more historic but stone-heavy Trinity College Dublin, as well as the trim but unimaginative University of Limerick. With its striking art museum, its remarkable, massive trees (sequoias, redwoods!), and its stunning central quad, this should be a destination for every visitor to Cork.
