"Cork City Gaol" County Cork Things to Do Tip by Krumel

County Cork Things to Do: 73 reviews and 150 photos


The old gaol has been redecorated and done up as a museum, with furnished cells and life-like wax figures illustrating the history of the gaol. You can walk from cell to cell with your tape recorder and listen to the stories of the people who were incarcerated there. If you like you can also watch the audio-visual presentation.
