"Kilmainham Jail" Kilmainham Jail Tip by ThoraSB

Kilmainham Jail, Dublin: 78 reviews and 142 photos

If you can, take a tour of Kilmainham Jail. The history of this place is incredible, and the people who spent time here are some of the most famous (and infamous) in Irish history. The guided tours are very informative, and looking through their museum gives you a great idea of what life in that prison was like. It was really amazing to see in person what I had learned about in many of my Irish history and politics classes. It makes history come to light!
