Founded in 1845, University College Cork is one of Ireland’s oldest universities, it being a sister university to both Queen’s College in Belfast (now Queen’s University Belfast) and Galway (now National University of Ireland, Galway). The university is located a ten-minute walk or short cycle from the heart of Cork city, and the university campus enjoys all the facilities of a modern campus while still retaining the charm of its 170 plus year old heritage.
