Visitor information

Plan your visit to the museum, UCC and Cork city.

The Glucksman is currently closed for the holidays. We reopen on Tuesday 5 January 2021. 


The Glucksman is located on the campus of University College Cork and is open to the public year round. The gallery is situated in the university's picturesque lower grounds, accessible to pedestrians from the ceremonial gates at the corner of Western Road and O'Donovan's Road. You will find us on the right walking up the main avenue.
