This tour was around the old jail facility. Tour was 2 euros and it brought you around the jail. The have a beautiful museum inside to help you reflect on what you've learned in the tour.

We wish that we had left more time to look through the museum at the start before taking the tour. The tour guide was amazing, the group was huge though with limited time to ask questions. Overall the tour was cheap and interesting but if you really know your irish history would probably get more out of this than we did.

We showed our student cards and entrance fee was very cheap. Great tour, hadn't been since I was in school. Definitely recommend for a day out.
