Learn about this historic jail, and the role it played in the independence of Ireland. Also, much of the movie "Paddington 2" was filmed here

Known as the "Irish Bastille," many significant political prisoners were held and, at times, executed here at Kilmainham. Want to learn about Ireland's fight for independence? Look no further.
