Kilmainham Gaol is one of the largest unoccupied gaols in Europe. Leaders of the rebellions of 1798, 1803, 1848, 1867 and 1916 were detained here. Names such as Henry Joy McCracken, Robert Emmet, Anne Devlin, Charles Stewart Parnell and the leaders of 1916 will always be associated with the goal. Access to the Kilmainham Gaol museum is always combined with a guided tour.
