Official tourism website for Cork, Ireland

UCC Visitors’ Centre is located centrally in the North Wing of University College Cork's (UCC) main quadrangle – the cultural and historical heart of campus.

Join a guide-led tour and become immersed in the rich history of University College Cork.

Tours include a visit to UCC’s Honan Chapel, the President’s Garden – once hidden by high stone walls - and the Crawford Observatory.

Visitors will love UCC’s Ogham Stone collection; ancient quarried slabs of stone illustrating an early coded form of the Irish language.

Experience 19th century Ireland – ravaged by The Great Famine, with UCC’s ‘Án Bothán’ – a replica of a famine cabin or ‘mud hut’, inhabited by Ireland’s poorest families.

Browse through UCC official branded merchandise at the UCC Visitors’ Centre store – the Visitors’ Centre offers a bespoke merchandise manufacturing service.
