Art Gallery sights in County Cork
- Sort by:
This award-winning gallery in the grounds of University College Cork (UCC) is a startling limestone, steel and timber construction that was the most visible symbol of Corkonian optimism when it opened in 2004. Not even severe flood damage to its basement storage rooms in November 2009 has dampened its sense of purpose, which is to display the best in both national and international contemporary art and installation. If you're in town, don't miss the free fortnightly curatorial tours; the website has details. The gallery's situation in the university grounds means it's always buzzing with people coming to attend lectures, view the artwork or procrastinate in the cafe.
