I was not aware of Kilmainham Gaol prior to visiting Dublin however I seen it as my wife and I were doing the hop on/off bus tour around town.

Very memorable visit to this historic site. We followed the Guide whom gave a very good story to every aspect, including the film Italian Job, to the more historic political haunting recounts of the Political prisoners. Simply a must for history enthusiasts.
Loved this place. The guide was very knowledgable and gave a good in-site to life inside Gaol. We had lunch in the cafe which was nice. I would recommend that you book this tour on line as it gets very busy
Definitely plan early as this is not a drop-in tour place. They put you on a list for a dedicated tour stop and often times, the same day is booked in full.
We toured with our toddler son. I wouldn't recommend it for young kids,...More

Where will I parkl the car near Kilmainham Gaol (11 Replies)
Hi all, A quickie !! I will have the car with me when visiting the Gaol this w/e. Where will I park it? I've searched reviews on TA to find out but most visitors it seems don't take a car there. As i will be passing right by on my way into city centre I was going to visit. Will you let me know what my parking options are?

Uasal, Thomas Street car park is QUITE a hike from Kilmainham Gaol, at least 20 mins walk. I would suggest trying to find parking on Emmet Road and walking around the corner to the Gaol. hope this helps
Help needed with transportation from Dun Laoghaire to Dublin (14 Replies)
Hi! Would really appreciate help figuring out how to get from Dun Laoghaire to Dublin. I think Dart is my best bet into Dublin, but can't seem to figure out what stop to get off that would be close to the green HOHO. Our first destination once in Dublin is the Kilmainham Gaol. Can help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks!
