Kilmainham Gaol: for lovers of gloomy monuments of the past

Kilmainham Gaol: for lovers of gloomy monuments of the past

Published : 25.05.2020

Are you a fan of non-trivial attractions? Palaces, parks and monuments are wonderful, but you want something special? Kilmainham Gaol is a great choice! For 2 centuries, the country's authorities kept prisoners fighting for the independence of Ireland. The prison was not just a place of imprisonment, but also a place of torture and executions - probably, therefore, the atmosphere here is difficult and gloomy. In the middle of the 20th century, the prison suspended its direct activities and began to work as a museum, attracting a large number of visitors from the first day: everyone is interested to see the conditions in which the most famous Irish prisoners were kept. Kilmainham makes a special impression and definitely deserves your attention.

Clonony Castle - an outstanding building of the Tudor era

Clonony Castle - an outstanding building of the Tudor era

Published : 25.05.2020

In the Middle Ages, each self-respecting clan had to have its own castle - a symbol of prestige and prosperity. Most of the buildings that reached us were blooming family residences at one time, and Clonony Castle is no exception. Built at the beginning of the 16th century, during the reign of the famous royal family of the Tudors, it has long served as the residence of families associated with crowned persons. Its architecture is still fascinating, the legends of the ghosts of the castle give goosebumps, and the moat dug around the fortress reminds us that everything was not always smooth in the history of Ireland. In a word, this is an ideal attraction that every self-respecting traveler should visit.
