  • One of the best ambiance University in Ireland. Lovely walk near River Lee. Epic view from the entrance too. Glade that I got a call from it. Look forward to start. Story of the Legendary founder of Boolean algebra Sir Boolean from UCC.
  • Beautiful place. I feel like come out from Harry Potter :)
