Nano Nagle Place contains a complex of buildings, including a 1771 convent and 1865 chapel, together with many former school buildings. Declining numbers lead to the closure of the school and the site has now been transformed into a lively experience with a heritage centre, archive, shop and café. The Cork School of Architecture is housed in a contemporary building designed by JCA Architects who were responsible for the conversion and adaption of the existing educational buildings.

Kristina Decker (pictured on the right) is the recipient of the ‘Desmond Guinness Scholarship 2017’ for her study "Women and Improvement in Eighteenth-Century Ireland: The Case of Mary Delany". Mary Granville (1700-88), who later became Mrs. Pendarves and finally Mrs. Delany, engaged in extensive correspondence and had a reputation for lively observations on life and society in eighteenth century England and Ireland. She was also a talented artist.
