Today we visited the Kilmainham Gaol in Dublin, This prison played an important part in Irish history, as many leaders of Irish rebellions were imprisoned and some executed in the prison. The tour was filled with interesting stories told by our guide. A must visit when you’re in Dublin and want to learn more about the Irish history.

The movie ‘In the name of the Father’ with Daniel Day-Lewis was shot here: youtu.be/b1VcwIncgYs. Also one of the older music videos by U2 ‘a celebration’ was shot here: youtu.be/HBP64ZssRNY
