Voted one of Belfast’s top attractions by TripAdvisor, Crumlin Road Gaol is a sight to behold. Closed for business in 1996 after 150 years, today it is host to everything from educational tours to weddings and concerts – not to mention claiming to be one of the most haunted sites in Belfast.

The Crumlin Road Gaol dates back to 1845 and closed it's doors as a working prison in 1996.  Take a guided tour of the prison and hear about the history of the site  and visit the underground tunnel that used to connect the gaol to the Crumlin Road Courthouse. 5 min drive. For further information…

I have personally done this tour twice and enjoyed it both times. The tour lasts around 45 minutes and there is a shocking surprise at the end.. :)
