Follow in the footsteps of Cork’s historic convicts with a visit to Cork Goal. The Gaol has been a museum since 1993 following its closure as a working prison in 1923. A visit to Cork Goal allows you to discover day to day prison life in the 19th century.

Located a short 15 minutes’ drive or 6 km from the Clayton Hotel Silver Springs, Cork City Gaol in Sundays Well district is definitely worth a visit. During the summer months hop on one of the bus tours from the city centre to avoid traffic.
