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.

“Amazing History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2013

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.

“Escape from reality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

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.

“family day out”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

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