"A great campus with modern architecture and great sculptures"

Founded by Queen Victoria, this University is the most reputable universities here. Apart from being a beautiful campus, this university houses lovely architecture and sculptures that make the stroll through the garden simply admirable. They also had a free exhibition of several stones that preserve Ogham scripture.
