Crumlin Road Gaol is a former prison located on the Crumlin road to the north of Belfast in Northern Ireland. If you take the tour, it's very informative. The place tells about prisoners and their lives lived in the jail. The way they were flogged and punished. The Gaol takes you back in 1845 when the attraction and conference center was actually a prison. There's an underground tunnel that once connected the Goal to the courthouse. There are also wax idols in the gaol.

Wow this historical treasure really took my breath away. The history, the stories, the beautiful restaurant in such a dark jail makes it accessible to all. I was truly amazed and found the Guide courteous, informative and a brilliant storyteller, while he guided us around the jail. A definite must for one and All!
Didn't know what to expect when we started our tour because I didn't really know much about this prison but really enjoyed it. Our tour guide was Aaron. He was really good. Very interesting. He set the mood. Would recommend a visit.
A really interesting tour, the guide was super, funny as well as knowledgeable. Could almost feel that noose tightening round my neck. And if you wanted, you can now get married there. Well people do say it’s a life sentence
If you want to go to prison without having to stay this is a great place to start. I've been to Alcatraz many years ago but this is far better. It gives you a real feel for what it might have been like to be here and also a good social history of Belfast. Make this number one on your list when in Belfast next but make sure to book as it's cheaper. And it's only 15 minutes walk from Castlecourt shopping centre.
This tour is insanely interesting and well done. Coming from someone who struggles to keep focus on things at times, I was enthralled with the entire tour, the hour flew by. Terry was our tour guide and he was really really great. Highly recommend.
