11 James Street is a student accommodation located in central Cork, making it ideal for those who are looking to balance their social and academic life. Students who are studying at the University College Cork will be glad to know that it’s hardly a 15-minutes’ walk away from the residence. Spend time reading books at the UCC Boole Library after all the lectures for the day are over without worrying about reaching home late.
The accommodation is well-connected via excellent public transport links, with the nearest bus stop a stone’s throw away. Even the nearest railway station, Cork (Kent) station is less than a 13-minutes’ bus ride away, so you can explore nearby cities over a long weekend. International students can breathe easy since Cork Airport takes 10 minutes to reach by car, so the chances of missing a flight is bleak.
All of the rooms at 11 James Street are spacious and well-equipped to ensure a comfortable stay. Make use of the study spaces in your room when you have to prepare for an upcoming test. When you’re looking for a change, head to the communal spaces where you can play card games with the other residents. The kitchen is well-equipped, so you can don the chef’s hat and impress your friends with your culinary skills.
To ensure that the students don’t spend too much time worrying about their pile of dirty clothes, there is an onsite washing machine. During the weekends, head to Merchants Quay Shopping Centre which is within walking distance for all your shopping needs. Take a walk alongside the River Lee when you want to spend some time alone and explore the various eateries and cafes around you like Perry Street Market Café and Comix Bistro.
