Kilmainham Gaol is so overrun with ghosts that it makes your average haunted jail seem like a great place spend a relaxing weekend. When it's not the prisoners you have to worry about, but the rather the violent poltergeist activity, you know you've got a bad case of the spookies. If you're looking for an awesome spooky place to visit, this is THE PLACE.

My husband and I visited Kilmainham Gaol while in Dublin and we loved it! Not sure how much it is by itself to get in, but we got the Dublin Pass which allowed us entry to this historic prison. Highly recommend the Dublin Pass for anyone touring Dublin. The tour was very interesting. Lots of interesting history about the jail and the architecture was really neat to see and walk through as well.

Well I haven't seen anything ghostly during my tour, but it's still an amazing place to visit! It was used many times in movies and tv series and the energy and stories and incredible! A highlight of my trip to Ireland!
