Kilmainham Gaol, Dublin's former prison, may have closed its doors in 1924, but it remains a fascinating and critical piece of history. Throughout Ireland's struggle for independence, leaders of its rebel movements, including the 1916 Rising, were imprisoned and even executed here. Today, the jail stands as an important symbol in the story of Irish nationalism and a reminder of the lives lost along the way. However, thousands of ordinary people were also held in Kilmainham for their crimes - ranging from petty theft to murder. The conditions by which men, women, and even children were kept while imprisoned provides a unique look at another perspective of life in 18th century Dublin. The jail is open for visitors seven days a week, year-round with opening/closing times varying slightly by month. This is a very popular attraction in Dublin so it is highly recommended to book in advance online. Allow about 90 minutes for the complete tour of the building. Image Credit: NakNakNak on Pixabay
