Very interesting muesuem. The figures they use are very lifelike and really makes you understand what the people went through around the time of the famine.

Interesting and informative

We stopped off here on a rainy day while on holidays in Kerry. The tour is done in an engaging manner and the lives of the prisoners who passed through are illustrated really well. It’s a short tour (around 30 minutes).

Fascinating look at a historical sight

We stopped here after getting off the Tarbert ferry- it’s a mile or less from the ferry terminal and right on the main road. Really well restored building and interesting interactive displays of the prisoners, jailkeeper, and court house. Worth the stop, and only takes about 45 mins to see everything...

An excellent little place to refresh and absorb some local history

I visited Tarbert Bridewell in April of this year with my wife and two kids. The people are exceptionally friendly, the tea and scone was super tasty and we really enjoyed the short self guided tour that gives a wonderful insight into Ireland during very difficult and historic times.

A great place to spend an hour before or after crossing on the ferry.

Spent a pleasant hour here today. Interesting history and good restoration. Excellent hospitality from the staff, who were very friendly and helpful. Cosy cafe at the end of our visit, with delicious hot chocolate!

Insightful.

The lady in the adjacent coffee shop gave us a quick overview of the origin of the Bridewell & life in it. Lovely restoration job was carried out. Entry was €5 per person. A good overview of life in Tarbert was given. Ample parking. Other local attractions include Leslie House and the ferry crossing.
Makes for an interesting afternoon.

Nice interlude

On the way from Tralee to Limerick we visited this little gem. Restored after a local initiative and taken care of by volunteers this gives a good impression of these kind of prisons in Ireland and their context.

We actually came across The Birdwell whilst looking for a toilet! The staff were great and we had a coffee and chat when they gave us ideas as to what to do in the area. One of the ideas was to do the Fairy Walk which I recommend to all.
As it was late in the day it was too late to go into the museum so we went back the next day. We had a personal tour guide who was great. We had a great tour, given time to explore ourselves as well. After yet more cake and coffee we left to move on to another part of the Wild Atlantic Way

A different era

Visited this attraction whilst in the area - what a different world we live in - 7 days in prison for trespass or sent to Australia for minor theft - how times have changed - very educational and great for children

A bit pricey
Apr 2018 • Couples
We were on our way to catch the ferry and decided to wait for the next one and spend the 10.5 Euros to see this. (One of us was a senior, or it would have been 14 E. It was interesting but not really worth the price to us. It did have restroom facilities which we needed. And the very helpful staff had the ferry schedule and prices.

Its small and can be visited in 1/2 hr. They do have a nice tea shop with pastries while you wait.
