Conference Venue

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.


UCC Campus Maps are available here.



The main campus of UCC is about a kilometre west of Cork city centre, about 15 minutes’ walk along Washington Street.  The College Gates on Western Road are ceremonial (foot access only): the entrance to the main campus is on College Road, and there are side entrances on Donovan’s Road, Gaol Walk and other entrances on College Road.
