The NeuroGASTRO Congress 2017 will take place in the University College Cork (UCC).
Founded in 1845, University College Cork is one of the oldest institutes of higher learning in Ireland. The university campus enjoys all the facilities of a modern metropolis while still retaining the charm of its history and heritage.
UCC is located on the banks of the River Lee in the western part of Cork city, approx. 1 km from the city centre. The main parts of UCC’s campus are along Western Road and College Road.
Cork is located in the South-West Region, in the province of Munster of Ireland. It has a population of 125,622 and is the second largest city in the state and the third most populous on the island of Ireland. In 2005, the city was selected as the European Capital of Culture.
The city is built on the River Lee which splits into two channels at the western end of the city; the city centre is divided by these channels. They reconverge at the eastern end where the quays and docks along the river banks lead outwards towards Lough Mahon and Cork Harbour, one of the world's largest natural harbours.
The Guardian recently called Cork "a city with a little bit of everything, and a touch of magic". Find out more information on places to visit, things to do and what's on in Cork City from the Guardian's city guide.
