Cork City Gaol and Radio Museum is a significant part of Corks historical & cultural heritage. It is easily accessible as it just 2KM’s from the city centre and is both fun and informative. This magnificent castle-like building built in 1824 once housed 19th century prisoners! Visitors get a fascinating insight into day-to-day prison life at a time when the high walls ensured no escape and denied law-abiding citizens the opportunity to see one of the finest examples of Ireland’s architectural heritage. At the same location and uniquely situated in the former Governor’s House, is the Radio Museum Experience incorporating a restored broadcasting studio and audio visual displays.
There are many interesting facts to discover while visiting. Cork offers so much to see and do, we hope you stick around for awhile.
