Travel information


Cork’s official tourism website provides a wealth of information on travelling to and getting around both the County and City, as well as recommendations on what to do, where to eat, and where to stay, should you decided to extend your trip.

UCC’s campus is full of interesting buildings and features. From the Lewis Glucksman Gallery in the Lower Grounds to the Stone Corridor of the Main Quadrangle, UCC is a great place to spend a few hours.

The conference will take place against the backdrop of the Cork Midsummer Festival, which will provide participants with a great opportunity to discover the vibrant cultural life of Cork City. However, this means it will be a busy time in town, so we recommend attendees to book accommodation early to avoid higher prices and limited availability.

Here are some accommodation options near the UCC campus, covering a range of budgets and facilities:

There is also a number of other B&Bs in Western Road, next to the main campus entrance, such as Acton Lodge, Hazelton House, and Crawford House. You will find additional options in the city centre, which is around 20 minutes from campus by foot and well connected by taxi and public buses.
