As I had photographed ever university campus in Ireland other than UCD and as I was in the area I decided that I should visit and photograph the Belfield campus.

Belfield is a small enclave, not quite a suburb, in Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown, Ireland. It is synonymous with the main campus of University College Dublin.

In 1934, UCD bought Belfield House and from 1949 to 1958 purchased a group of adjoining properties to form a potential campus estate.
