Locked Up

Built in 1796 to house common criminals, Kilmainham Gaol would become one of the most recognizable symbols of British oppression during Ireland’s struggle for independence. Come see where political dissidents were locked away in cold, squalid conditions, where freedom fighters were left to rot. A guided tour, included in the price of admission, will educate you about the long, unsavory history of the huge prison complex, now the largest unoccupied jail in the British Isles. You’ll also get to see the prison’s museum, which features exhibits on Irish history and artwork made by contemporary Irish prisoners.
