Cork City Gaol

Cork is a city with a very rich historical and archaeological heritage much of it still in evidence today. Part of this heritage, Cork City Gaol, is a magnificent castle-like building which once housed 19th century prisoners. Take a trip back in time and wander through the wings of the Gaol, accompanied by the shuffling feet of inmates and the jingle of the warders’ keys.

The cells are furnished with amazingly life-like wax figures and Graffiti on the cell walls reveals the innermost feelings of some inmates. The audio-visual show will help you learn about the social history and contrasting lifestyles of 19th century Cork.

The Radio Museum, an ode to the Broadcasting Station which was once located in the Gaol, houses a small collection of radios, exhibits on communication, Marconi and a reconstruction of the original Cork 6CK Studio.

This exhibition fascinates visitors of all ages and nationalities and the tour is available in up to 13 languages.

Current opening times:  Oct-Mar Mon-Sun 10am-4pm and Apr-Sept Mon-Sun 9.30am-5pm
