2. KIL­MAIN­HAM GAOL

Hot Press - - News Years Festival Dublin -

An­other fa­mous Dublin build­ing that has been trans­formed into a mu­seum is Kil­main­ham Gaol, one of the most im­por­tant lo­ca­tions of the 1916 Ris­ing. The for­mer prison is one of the largest un­oc­cu­pied gaols in Europe, cov­er­ing some of the most heroic and tragic events in Ire­land’s his­tory.

Step­ping back into his­tory, the guides will share some hair-rais­ing, heart-break­ing and in­spi­ra­tional sto­ries as you walk through this dra­matic and im­pos­ing build­ing – and through more than a hun­dred years of strug­gle and sac­ri­fice. By the end you’ll be en­light­ened, en­thralled and – thank­fully – al­lowed to leave.

En­trance is by guided tour only and ad­vance book­ing is rec­om­mended: kil­main­ham­gaol­mu­seum.ie
