Kilmainham Gaol

Dublin’s Kilmainham Gaol held some of the most famous political and military leaders in Irish history such as Robert Emmet, Charles Stewart Parnell, the 1916 Rising leaders and Eamon de Valera.

The Gaol was built in 1796 and was called the ” New Gaol ” replacing the one which was more of a hovel than a gaol.

From that date to 1820, hanging’s took place outside the front gate once a week.

Men, women and children were not segregated and 5 to a cell was the norm, all they had was the one candle for light and heat.

Most of the time the prisoners were in the dark and cold as they only got one candle every fortnight.

A fascinating tour about the prison and Irish history.
