I don't know what it is about the Quad buildings in both UCC and NUI there seems to be an Oxford feel to them or maybe I watch too much Inspector Morse.

The Quad was built for Queens College Cork around 1847 and opened in November 1849.  It was built using Cork limestone known for its very light colour, the architects were Sir Thomas Deane (1782-1871), and Benjamin Woodward (1819-1861) well known in their field using Gothic Style and also designed two university museum buildings, in Dublin and in Oxford, possibly why it gives me the Inspector Morse vibe.

The term 'Quadrangle' refers to both the four-sided space enclosed, and to the buildings that enclose it.
