Guided Tour of Crumlin Road Gaol in Belfast
USD 10.09
Explore the Crumlin Road Gaol and gain insight into Belfast’s criminal history on this 1-hour tour. Follow a guide through the infamous Crumlin Road Gaol and learn of the many unsavoury characters once held here. Visit the reception buildings — where new arrivals were processed — and follow the prisoners’ footsteps from the courthouse to the jail. See the various different wings from a high vantage point, experience life locked inside one of the cells and see where prisoners spent their final days before hanging for their crimes.
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.

Well worth it.

Good tour worth doing. We had a small group of 4 but if it was much bigger I'm not sure how you'd get into some of the rooms together. The tunnel underneath is good. Glad I went, but also glad I got there early before...More

Glad we went!

We enjoyed the tour. The guide was informative and answered all our questions. The trip into the death cell was delayed as someone before us " had a little accident". The tunnel was nasty. I'd certainly recommend this tour to anyone vacationing in Belfast.
