Wicklow Gaol is a museum and former prison. As a prison, it dates back to the 1700s, housing prisoners from the famine and the 1798 rebellion. It was reopened as a museum in 1998. It is said to be one of the most haunted buildings in the world. The gaol is open until 3.30/4.30 (depending on time of year), and all tickets are less than ten euro, making it an affordable and educational day out for all.
