Learn about this historic jail, and the role it played in the independence of Ireland. Also, much of the movie "Paddington 2" was filmed here

The tour offers a really interesting insight into Ireland’s history and fight for independence. Rated #1 visitor attraction in Dublin on Tripadvisor in July 2019.

Known as the "Irish Bastille," many significant political prisoners were held and, at times, executed here at Kilmainham. Want to learn about Ireland's fight for independence? Look no further.
