Kilmainham Gaol - Review

Kilmainham Gaol is a well known prison in Dublin. This place, which is out of use now, is a big tourist attraction. The prison has seen the imprisonment and execution of several famous Irish leaders. You enter through a small museum where you will get to know a lot more about Irish history and the rebellion.

It is quite easy to find this place a bit overwhelming. The silence dominates the atmosphere where prisoners had been kept without any contact with the outer world. It makes sense to hire a tour-guide to hear an authentic account of the Easter Rebellion which is closely associated with all the famous prisioners. There is a stunning hall in the middle of the prison. The big windows and the doors are protected with iron bars.

The prison also displays many manuscripts in the museum. The Irish struggle of Independence is described in detail in these. More than 200 years old this place is a very fascinating yet somber site to visit in Dublin.

  • What a spectacular way to learn about Irish history. I’m not the biggest history buff but I loved everything about this tour. Our guide was an absolute doll full of information. It certainly educated me more about Ireland as well as intrigued me to learn more. Quite a lovely place!

  • We had a magnificent experience at Kilmainham Gaol. Dawn was our guide, and she had so much genuine passion for this goal and the stories that it tells. It was a very emotional experience to learn of the heroes of the Easter Rising that sparked such a profound chain of events. As a South African our country's history shares some similarities with Ireland's, which just added to the impact. The Gaol also hosted an exhibition of Nelson Mandela's life and influence, which was a special addition for us and brought the tears all over again. Thank you for this amazing experience.

  • Awesome experience. The tour lasted exactly one hour and it was very informative. A great introduction to Irish history and it goes well with the Richmond Barracks down the road. I would definitely get tickets a couple of days in advance to secure a spot on the tour.

  • If the story of the fight for independence means something to you, you MUST come see this. Take the extended tour & spend some time in the museum. It is truly moving, heartbreaking & breath-taking. We were lucky to have Adam as our guide, he really feels the story of independence in his soul-and he conveyed it in a really beautiful manner.

  • Very good tour and well worth the time! Our guide was really knowledgable and passionate about Irish history. Kilmainham Gaol is a interesting look into the political and social struggles of Dublin's past. We bought the tickets for 4 euros each, on the day of our visit at the museum. Online tickets sell out well in advance...
