An amazing place to go to in Cork City. You can still see the writing on the wall in some cells from the prisoners that were there over a hundred years ago.
Interesting piece of history

Audiovisual was great 👍 very interesting to see what the Gaol was like in the 1800’s! Children aged 15, 13 and 8 all enjoyed it….. quiz for them to do.

This was our 4th old gaols of Ireland we've visited and it didn't dissapoint. Plenty of history and more things we've learned. Visit little different due to covid but still a great experience and would recommend to other people to visit.
