Prefect for few hours out. Give yourself time to walk around. This is something solo traveller could do. The information the gaol have put on tape is second to none.
I recently went to Cork City Gaol for the first time and as someone living in Cork it was well overdue. I found the staff very friendly and the prices were ok. It is well worth getting the recorded tour and you get to keep it so you can listen to it again at you leisure if you want to... More
I visited the gaol with my wife and 2 children. You could experience everything that is on offer in 10 to 15 minutes. Essentially, this is an old gaol with a small wing being maintained. Overall terrible value. Rude staff.
Always enjoy visiting this attraction. It is very interesting. There is quite an eerie feeling in the place and it is not to wonder when you learn of the happenings in there. very young children were held there for doing nothing more than stealing a load of bread. Those were hard times indeed. I would NOT like to spend a... More
This is another of Cork Citys visitors treasures. It really worth seeing. But not suitable for young children. First time I wanted to visit I brought my daughter and 3 young grandchildren on the Cork City Tour bus hop on and hop off We got off at the train station and they were delighted with the old train and the...

This is an exciting experience. The setup brings you right back in time and lets you feel [almost] what is was like in the old , cold jail. Excellent guids with loads of information. Well worth a visit.
Visited Cork Gaol last weekend. Despite the Gaol being quite eery this just added to the experience. Its hard to believe people were held captive for (sometimes) very insignificant reasons. I would definitely recommend visiting this attraction, especially on a rainy day, but I would wear warm clothes!!! Very good and informative visit. Have fun!!
A wonderful experience, rather chilling to see and hear what happened within the gaol. well worth a trip to see
A lovely step back in history in this renovated gaol. It was amazing to see how small the cells were, and it had an air of eeriness about it, you could practically feel the pain of the previous prisoners. Models were very lifelike, and there was plenty of information about the gaol, and audiovisual.
This is by far the coldest place that I have ever been in and one of the most interesting buildings steeped in history. Sad, sad stories that are true and part of our history. If in Cork a must place to visit.
