|Cork City Gaol |
Stepping inside visitors are taken back in time to the 19th century/early 20th century . Wandering through the wings of the Gaol, the atmosphere suggests you are accompanied by the shuffling feet of inmates past, each representing their particular period in Irish history from pre –famine times to the foundation of the state. The cells are furnished with amazingly life like wax figures; original graffiti on cell walls tell the innermost feelings of some inmates while a audio visual tells the social history and contrasting lifestyles of the 19th /20th century Cork and why some people turned to crime, and some ended up in Australia. Open 7 days a Week, All Year Round.
