Cork City Gaol

Cork is a city on a south coast of Ireland with a very rich historical heritage – much of it exists as evidence today.

Cork City Gaol is one of the most memorable Cork tourist attractions.

Part of this heritage – Cork City Gaol is located 2 km North-West from Patrick’s Street and while the wonderful castle-like structure is now a major and unique visitor attraction, this Gaol once held nineteenth century criminals.

Guests will get a fascinating insight into day-to-day jail life at a time when the high walls ensured no escape and denied law-abiding citizens the opportunity to see one of the finest examples of Ireland’s architectural heritage.
