Crumlin Road Gaol is a historic Victorian-era prison which was a working gaol for over 150 years. In that time it saw children as young as ten pass through the gates as inmates. It has housed prisoners through times of severe punishment, world wars, and political conflicts. Sixteen years after its closure, the gaol opened to the public. The Gaol is open 7 days a week with tours running every 30 minutes from 10.00am to 4.30pm. Tours last approximately 70 minutes, and in that time you will be taken on a journey through history by one of our knowledgeable guides. Adults: £9.00 Historic Guided Tour Visitors start their journey in the reception area, where prisoners were first processed. You will then be taken to the legendary Crumlin Road tunnel where inmates in Victorian times made their way into gaol to serve their harsh sentence, and prisoners during the ‘Troubles’ met on their way to and from the courthouse. From there you are taken to the ‘Long Hall’ where you step inside the Governor’s Office and learn the fate of the prisoners who were called to see the man in charge.
