Armagh Gaol is one of Northern Ireland’s most important landmark buildings. Steeped in history, for most of its working life, Armagh Gaol was the primary women’s prison in Northern Ireland until its closure in 1986. The Gaol is Grade B+ listed and today it operates as a pop-up tourist attraction, giving the public the opportunity to see the Gaol in its original state.
The guided tour will transport you back in time to visit areas such as the Circle, B-Wing, the punishment cells and the execution area. The Gaol has seen many changes over the years. Come and see Armagh Gaol in its untouched state and hear the stories of the people who spend time inside the walls of this infamous prison.
