  • I've had a pleasure to study there and it's always gonna be one of my best memory. I highly recommend to visit this amazing place or start education there. Simply amazing.
  • The UCC is really worth visiting. Most buildings have a sort of medieval look that gives the campus a real classic university vibe. There are tours everyday, but unfortunately we weren't able to take one. It would be good to have more signs with more information about the university and buildings.
