Kilmainham Gaol is one of the largest unoccupied gaols in Europe. Leaders of the rebellions of 1798, 1803, 1848, 1867 and 1916 were detained here. Names such as Henry Joy McCracken, Robert Emmet, Anne Devlin, Charles Stewart Parnell and the leaders of 1916 will always be associated with the goal. Access to the Kilmainham Gaol museum is always combined with a guided tour.

Can someone explain why you cannot book tickets more than 30 days in advance? This sounds nuts for a very popular tourist attraction, could someone explain?
Excellent tour, very sad listening to the stories of the prisoners. Tour guide Ellen was so knowledgeable and made tour so interesting, staff were so friendly from Dave mc greeting us on arrival to Alan giving us lots of information.well worth a visit .!
