It's good for kids and teenagers. For an adult it's moderately interesting. If it's a wet day in Cork, it's somewhere dry that you won't regret going to.

Mostly it focuses on 19th century prison conditions and the story of some prisoners. There's also a radio exhibition that seems to be there because it doesn't have much of a home anywhere else.

We thought the tour was well done, although we probably would have liked it better if we hadn't toured the Kilmainham Gaol in Dublin. From the DT area, it's about a 20-25 minute walk, mostly uphill.

I haven't been personally but a friend did about two weeks ago and was very impressed - so much so that I was given the brochure on his return and told to go see on my next trip down that way.

Went there a short time ago. Its ok worth a look. The entrence fee is a bit much for what you see 8 euro. Nice views on the walk down. We walked to cathedral then out to ucc then cross the river by the pedrastrian bridge.
