Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Province of Leinster / County Dublin / Dublin / Kilmainham Gaol Museum
Kilmainham Gaol Museum turns the clock back a few decades, offering you a look inside one of history's most notorious prisons. The imposing gray building played a key role in Irish history for over a century, finally closing its doors in 1924. Before then it provided a grim setting for the imprisonment of notable participants in the many uprisings for Irish independence, culminating in the execution of 14 men who led a rebellion that took place during Easter week in 1916. You can take a guided walk through the history of this eerie site, now one of Europe's largest unoccupied structures of its kind. Before you leave, look in on the yard where the infamous 1916 executions took place. To plan Dublin vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Kilmainham Gaol Museum reviews
If you are in Dublin i highly recommend seeing the prison. It is probably one of the top attractions in Dublin. Make reservations early. It is very much in demand.

Excellent one hour tour. Maggie was our tour guide. She spoke clearly with just the right amount of information about this very bleak time in Ireland’s history. Informative and very interesting...

Amazing morning. Thank you so much to Mick who gave a fabulous tour which was really interesting. Thank you to Ellen who kindly took time to discuss in more detail about the women and families. Both incredibly generous in their time and have brilliant expertise and knowledge. I'm not very clever with history but they really made it understandable. This is something that we were not taught in school and yet incredibly important to know.
This was a brilliant place to visit. Being a distance from the city centre, it would be easy to wonder if it's worth going; it most certainly is! We loved every minute of our visit and our guide (Ben) was so knowledgeable and passionate it was impossible not to be drawn in. I cannot recommend this highly enough.
