What's included

Admission to Crumlin Road Gaol
  • Explore some of the darker chapters of Anglo-Irish history at the 150-year-old, notorious Crumlin Road Gaol
  • Follow a fascinating self-guided tour route through Northern Ireland's last remaining Victorian-era prison
  • Learn about the personal stories of the prisoners and officers, tales of escape, execution, and even traces of humanity

Northern Ireland has its fair share of infamous locales, but there are few places as storied and stained with the blood of The Troubles as Crumlin Road Gaol. This former jailhouse imprisoned some of the most important figures in Ireland who struggled for independence and was the scene of 17 executions over its 150-year lifespan.

On this 60-minute self-guided walking tour through the grim history of the gaol, you'll discover the tales of humanity that shone through even in its darkest days.

The last of Northern Ireland's remaining Victorian-era prisons, Crumlin Road Gaol is a time capsule of Irish history where many of the most significant figures from the time of The Troubles were interned – and in some cases, executed.

The likes of Éamon de Valera, Martin McGuinness, Michael Stone, Bobby Sands, and some 25,000 other prisoners – both Republican and Loyalist – have passed through these cold, dark chambers over the course of a century and a half.

On this self-guided tour, you'll have access to all areas of the gaol, from the tunnel linking the courthouse on the other side of the Crumlin Road to the Hanging Cell, the Historic Holding Cells, Centre Circle, C-Wing, and last but not least, the eerie Graveyard.
