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.

We really enjoyed our visit for Halloween. There was so much going on for kids - the face painter was excellent, the balloon guy was great and the jester was so funny. The black cat treasure hunt was great fun and kept the kids occupied for ages. The staff were all friendly and helpful and the displays are fascinating. We had a great afternoon!

A very well done attraction. Lots of history. They provide you a booklet that takes you on a tour of the jail - it gives little stories and bits of info - super interesting! It is a beautiful and creepy place. Well worth a trip!

They added a special twist to the gaol by putting manikins in the calls portraying the past. Well worth a visit.
