Crumlin Road Gaol


The Crumlin Road Gaol dates back to 1845 and is one of Belfast’s most iconic buildings. After extensive renovations the gaol was re opened as a visitor attraction in 2012. Today you can take a guided tour of the prison and hear about the history of where men, women and children were imprisoned and the political segregation of republican and loyalist prisoners. You will also learn why the decision was made to close the prison in 1996.

During the tour of the gaol you will be taken by your informative tour guide to visit the underground tunnel that used to connect the Crumlin Road Courthouse to the gaol. You will get a chance to sit in the Governor's chair, view all the prison wings from the circle, walk along a wing, pay a visit to the condemned mans cell, before seeing where the executions were held.
