    What to Expect
    On your guided tour of Crumlin Road Gaol, visit the reception processing building, where incoming prisoners were processed and washed.

    Walk along the infamous tunnel linking the gaol to the Crumlin Road Courthouse, and take in the view of the gaol's center circle, which branches out into four wings: A, B, C, and D. You can explore cells where up to four prisoners at a time would live, plus see the 'Condemned Man's' cell, where a prisoner spent his final days before being executed by hanging.

    Your tour ends in the execution chamber and drop cell.

    This is a very chilling but well worthwhile tour. Our tour guide, Grace, was knowledgeable and entertaining. You get to go into the cells on the prison wings, the underground tunnel to the courthouse and the gallows room - its incredibly atmospheric and all the more unsettling
