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.
