    Nano Nagle Place is a unique complex in the heart of Cork city. The place has a museum, heritage rooms, gardens, the Good Day Deli, both a design and gift shop, and a Cork focused book shop in the museum. The gorgeous regenerated convent buildings are home to many educational charities. I advise anyone who hasn't been there to go there. Visiting this place is a magical experience as it retains a balance of cultural history and a modern green walkway.

    Such a beautiful place so close to the city. Gorgeous gardens and the Good Day Deli is a must. Gift shop as you come in with lovely handmade and unique bits. The museum looks well worth a visit - we will be back!

    The Nano Nagle place is the first place that I discovered in Cork, it was such an amazing place to see and the lovely thing that I recommend is to listen carefully to the story of Nano Nagle in the museum. It seems like to be lost in the right direction, I really love it and I appreciated too much the lovely ambassador dear Angles for making my day more beautiful.You are the right person in the right place. I wish you all the best.

    A beautiful and serene location which snuck up on us. My son had a wonderful time playing in the gardens, the food place is great for brunch, and the two stores are both little gems. A nice piece of history/biography for those who are interested and a spiritual and enjoyable place to relax for an afternoon!

    Went to school here a while ago now! great place to visit while in Cork city I've visited a couple of time's with my family and friends staff so friendly and helpful. Lovely to see Cork city history being preserved and remembering some of the wonderful women connected with Nano Nagle place (South pres school)

    I began my journey with Nano Nagle Place last year when I started volunteering with the Cork Migrant Center. Every Wednesday during the summer I was there and every Wednesday after I was so excited to go back! To this day I am still so fascinated by the beauty of Nano Nagle Place and all it's history which makes the place so much more beautiful, each time I visit I find it more gorgeous than the last time and I always learn something new.

    A hidden gem in the city. Gardens are beautiful, interesting award-winning museum. Very nice gift and book shops. Nice cafe that you can eat in or get takeaway coffees/cakes.

    A beautiful hub of knowledge complete with a museum and gift store with quaint and cute little handcrafted and artisan things. Has a beautiful garden tea shop/cafe. Even if you don’t go to the museum, this is still worth a visit because of the natural gardens and the crocheted flower garden. A work of art!

    Pleasant surprise stumbling across this peaceful spot in the middle of Cork city. We were greeted by a very friendly and informative worker. Didn’t take the paid tour, but enjoyed just walking around the grounds. Will have to return to try the little restaurant someday. Few people just relaxing and talking, and a couple others that looked like they were also there for the first time. I’m not sure I’d say it’s a must do if visiting Cork, but if you are here for an extended period of time, definitely check it out.

    Our first visit to Cork. This was the highlight of our stay. The museum is lovely. The restaurant was bonus (with excellent food & wine). Agnes, the "Ambassador" for the museum, would be my new best friend if I ever moved to your beautiful city! Her passion for Nano, the incredible "inside tour" and token gift she gave me, made a memory I will never forget. I knew nothing about the amazing Nano Nagle before visiting, but I know hold her dear to my heart and even have a print of her in my office. Thank you for putting together such a beautiful place (architecturally, it is a great site to visit in of itself). The other staff were also very helpful and friendly. 5 star visit!

    We had never heard of this strong independent woman. I am not religious bit could not help but admire the work she did which has been carried on in her name. The staff were all passionate about this place and keen to share their knowledge and answer any questions. The museum itself is designed well and is accessible to all ages in how the information is delivered. Nano Nagle's grave and surrounding area is in a beautiful setting. I am so pleased we visited this place and special thanks to Agnes whose photos on display from when she was a young girl helped to bring it to life.

    Great cafe here, (Good Day Deli). Beautiful location and excellent food. Good service too. Highly recommended.

    Lovely place to visit during your stay in Cork. You learn a lot about Nano and her work. The picture is of a bird in the garden I spotted. Super friendly staff to top the experience off!

    Beautiful location for brunch and the food is really good. The staff in Good Day Deli are efficient and friendly and the atmosphere is lovely. The only thing I disagree with is the cancellation fee of €20 if you cancel with less than 24 hours notice. Definitely book well in advance because there is very limited availability because they’re so popular.
