Cork City Gaol

Cork City Gaol is just 20 minutes' walk from the hotel and while the magnificent castle-like building is now a major and unique visitor attraction, this Gaol once housed 19th century prisoners. Visitors get a fascinating insight into day to day prison life at a time when the high walls ensured no escape and denied law abiding citizens the opportunity to see one of the finest examples of Irish architectural heritage.
