Owner description: Corks Most Captivating Experience:A step back in time to see what 19th/early 20th century life was like-inside and outside prison walls. Historical experience brought to life with amazingly lifelike figures, furnished cells, sound effects & fascinating exhibitions. This exhibition fascinates visitors of all ages and nationalities and the tour is available in up to 13 languages.

Amazing history to be seen in this old city jail. Fantastic old, well preserved building which is very big and powerful looking. Took the tour, it was very informative. Great staff, entry is reasonable and you learn a lot once inside. The grounds are also very nice. But the history you learn inside is incredible. Fantastic experience.

An interesting place steeped in history and I was glad I was only visiting!! An informative tour which was well set out. Certainly worth a visit and value for money, not too long so would fill a short gap in ones stay.

Although very interesting and a lot of history about it I felt it did not warrant the 14 euro fee to enter.
