Wicklow Gaol is a good attraction for young, old, couples, or those travelling solo. You get an introduction and some history of the jail by the jailer and then your are free to roam the cells and dungeons!

Loved roleplay of prison guards. Information in each cell. Prisoners' journey from prison in Wicklow, to Australia, arrival and prisoners' life in Austrailia. Wicklow Historical Jail is a must to visit.
