Kilmainham Gaol

Kilmainham Gaol is an old prison in Dublin which is most famous because lots of the members of Irish Easter Rising were kept here and some of them were even executed here. Nowadays there’s a museum where you can take guided tours. We took a guided tour with a really smart tour guide who told us all about the history of the jail and gave loads of information about the Easter Rising that is going to celebrate the 100th anniversary in 2016.

When we reached Kilmainham Gaol, we had to book our tour and wait about an hour, but when waiting we could have a look around at the exhibition. Our tour guide was really smart and she told us all about the history of the jail and gave loads of information about the Easter Rising that is going to celebrate the 100th anniversary in 2016.

If you want to get to know the Irish history Kilmainham Gaol is one of the places that you need to visit, because here you will get to know how this country has struggled for its independence to build up its own free state. It reminds me a lot of Estonian history, maybe that’s why I feel so much at home here.
