Crumlin Road Gaol, Belfast

Must see · Historic Site · Tourist Spot
The only Victorian-era prison in Northern Ireland, Crumlin Road Gaol held its last prisoner in 1996. The first 106 inmates were forced to walk to the prison in chains in 1846, but your walk along Crumlin Road will be much more pleasant. The dark gray sandstones give the prison's facade an ominous look. Nowadays, visitors roam the halls of the jail and view the cells where men, women, and even children paid their debts to society. Exhibits throughout the building tell their stories, along with information about the building's state-of-the-art 19th-century design. Put Crumlin Road Gaol and other Belfast attractions into our Belfast trip itinerary website, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • It is one of the most awesome experience I had at the place. The possibility of visiting a place where you get to see the historic artifact like this is amazing, specially with the understanding of people staying there because they have or may be haven't committed a crime makes it eye opening.
