Located in Kilmainham, Dublin, this forbidding gaol (jail) was in used to imprison and execute the leaders of 1916 rebels. It is now a museum run by the Office of Public Works, an agency of the Government of Ireland. 

Dating from 1789, the Kilmainham truly is an important site that tells the story of Irish history. The exhibition in a modern hall outlines the struggle for Irish independence, therefore this is considered a MUST for all history buff!
