Cork City Gaol

Cork City Gaol Review

This castle-like building contains an austere, 19th-century prison. Life-size wax figures occupy the cells, and sound effects illustrate the appalling conditions that prevailed into the 20th century. Also here, in the Governor's House, the Radio Museum Experience exhibits genuine artifacts from the 1923 radio station, 6CK, and tells the story of radio broadcasting in Cork.
