Kilmainham Gaol

Hubby and I have been saying that we'll go see Kilmainham Gaol since we moved here and we FINALLY went to see it this weekend. It's been unseasonably warm and so we decided to go for a walk around Dublin and then head over to the gaol which was really interesting.

It was 6 euros to go in and they gave you an hour tour with history of the gaol and information about its most famous residents including Eamon De Valera, former president of Ireland.

Here are some pics from the day:
