    What to Expect
    On your guided tour of Crumlin Road Gaol, visit the reception processing building, where incoming prisoners were processed and washed.

    Walk along the infamous tunnel linking the gaol to the Crumlin Road Courthouse, and take in the view of the gaol's center circle, which branches out into four wings: A, B, C, and D. You can explore cells where up to four prisoners at a time would live, plus see the 'Condemned Man's' cell, where a prisoner spent his final days before being executed by hanging.

    Your tour ends in the execution chamber and drop cell.

    Yes you can. It is better to book online and then you can choose a time slot. You can book at the attraction but it is very popular so they may not have certain times available.
