The Cork City Goal was a former prison but now stands as a historic building and museum that is open to the public. When the prison opened its doors in the 1820’s, anyone who had committed a crime within the city boundaries were housed at City Gaol. Anyone who committed crimes outside of the city boundaries were housed in the County Gaol.
In 1878, the Cork City Gaol then went on to become the Cork Women’s Gaol and The County Gaol became the Men’s Gaol.
City Gaol is an incredible location for functions, corporate events and is also used for weddings. Cork City Gaol is conveniently located a 20 minutes’ walk away from Hayfield Manor in Sundays Well and is a perfect location if you want to experience Cork History.
