Wicklow’s Historic Gaol, Co. Wicklow

wick 1

Wicklow’s Historic Gaol, in Wicklow Town, tells a story of crime, cruelty, exile and misery. The harshness of prison life in the 18th Century, the passion of the 1798 rebellion, the cruelty of the transportation ships and hope of a new life in Australia can all be experienced in Wicklow Gaol. This is a thought provoking attraction in Wicklow Town.

The original gaol dungeon is open again for the first time in over 100 years. Dare you come and experience first hand the sights and sounds of harsh life in the dungeon? Or, you could just sit in the solitude cell and feel the desperation of those that were there before you.
