The Western Gateway at UCC will be the center of all Startup Nations Summit activities, as well as the Startup Gathering events happening in Cork during Global Entrepreneurship Week.

A walk through UCC is must-do activity when it Cork. It was established in 1845 as one of three Queen’s Colleges - at Cork, Galway and Belfast. These new colleges were established in the reign of Queen Victoria. The campus surroundings are picturesque, on the edge of a limestone bluff overlooking the River Lee. Surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens, the limestone buildings of the Main Quadrangle of the UCC campus are built in a style inspired by the great universities of the Middle Ages.
