Nano Nagle Place


It can’t be often that an expression of spiritual tourism includes a university School of Architecture, but this is the case at Nano Nagle Place in Douglas Street in Cork. The development is a stunning display of history and contemporary design that celebrates the legacy of Nano Nagle and captures the essence of Cork culture.
