Kilmainham Gaol Dublin
Its a perfect way to start your stay, other museums and sites you will see along your trip will mean more to you after visiting Kilmainham Gaol.
If you enjoy museums, try to get a tour time earlier in the day so you have more time at the prison museum afterwards.

The MM, which is one of Ireland’s newest museums as it opened to the public in 2017, is the hub from which this history radiates.
