I must say I would not mind attending a University with such lovely buildings & gardens . We did struggle to find the entrance & to find parking which resulted in not all of us being able to walk...

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
University College Cork, a center for excellence. Creates a home for international students. Makes effort to assist the international students to have a swift transition and settle in the community. Always checking on them, not just on the academic section, but general well being. I will choose this school a million times and wouldn't think twice to recommend to someone. They have state of the art classrooms, highly educated and friendly tutors, automatic gym membership for students, provision of accomodation, transport service from Dublin to Cork upon resumption. Arranges international meetings. There are endless reasons for one to choose this school including the location in a friendly city. I love University College Cork ❤️
