Kilmainham prison

Recommended
The old Kilmainham prison is a place of remembrance symbolising English oppression and the Irish spirit of resistance. Most nationalists were imprisoned here between 1792 and 1924. Souvenirs, photographs, letters and press cuttings, exhibited in the modern gallery, retrace the countless incidents and rebellions during this period. The tour includes the central pavilion and chapel, where an audio-visual display retraces the prison's history.
