We are delighted to announce that Kilmainham Gaol Museum will re-open to visitors on Friday 30 July.

As restrictions on indoor guided tours remain in place, we are offering an alternative experience for our visitors. Ticket holders will be able to view the interior of the ground floor of the Gaol, while your guide will provide some interpretation of the Gaol’s vast history in the outdoor spaces. Your ticket also includes access to the Stonebreaker’s Yard and entrance to the Museum and “The Forgotten Ten” exhibition.

Admission is free for 2021, but all visitors including children and Heritage Card users require a ticket. It is essential to pre-book tickets online. Please do not arrive without booking in advance, as you will not gain entry.

To ensure the safety of our visitors & staff, Kilmainham Gaol is reopening at a reduced capacity. If you are unable to attend your scheduled visit for any reason, please let us know so we can release your tickets. Any cancellation or additional tickets for the day will be released online between 9:15am – 9:30am.

Visitors over the age of 13 are required to wear a face covering during their visit.

Wheelchair users and visitors with additional needs should not book tickets on-line. Please contact us in advance to arrange your visit: kilmainhamgaol@opw.ie
