We went to visit Inverary Jail on our last day (not knowing that if you go there first you get a discount at the castle!) and were pleasantly surprised. I really didn't expect there to be so much to see and so much information to take it! It is really well done, giving great insight into the history of the jail(s) as well as into what life was like at the time. Lots to read, but there are audio guides to take around with you too if you want. Great!

Had a great day out in Inverary. We visited the jail and was really fun and interesting. Kids enjoyed looking for the stamps to complete their collection card, so they could get a badge at the end ☺️

We visited on a weekend away, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Would defo recommend it as a place to visit, you also get 15% of the castle tickets with your receipt from the jail which we also visited

Great fun, loads of information. We used the audio headsets but also spoke to the role playing staff. Very enjoyable. The stairs will probably be too steep for anyone with mobility issues. Also if you attend you can then use your receipt to get 20% off admission to the castle.
