These are some of my favourite shots from my recent trip to Kilmainham Gaol in Dublin. First built in 1796, it was known for its dreadful conditions. There was no segregation of prisoners by gender or age, there were often five adults or children in 28 square metres cells with little light or warmth. It is most famous for imprisoning activists from the Easter Rising in 1916, when Irish republicans tried to end British rule in Ireland and establish an independent Irish Republic. Have you ever been? Are you much familiar with the history of Ireland and how it became segregated?
Wow, this place looks like a found footage movie waiting to happen. That tunnel is seriously creepy ad I love that first shot. Very cool pics. 🙂
A film version of Prison Break perhaps? 😉
Or a group of paranormal investigators, checking up on reported sightings, find malevolent spirits are actually there, keeping them locked in, and killing them one by one.
I know it’s incredibly unoriginal, but that location is too epic too not utilize. 😀
I was thinking about whether any films matched with your description and then thought I will produce a quiz. Thanks for the idea 🙂
I think most of them match. 😀
Thanks. Same to you 🙂
I’m planning a trip to Dublin next year and now I’m definitely going to have to fit this in.
I hope you get to. I’ve recently put up quite a few posts from my time in Dublin if you get the chance to see them.
Love these photos. Photos of creepy old jails are so fascinating! So much history in those old stoney walls.
If those walls could talk! I went to Alcatraz as a child, but would love to see it again as an adult.

Very creepy. My dad’s partner would love this. She has a particular interest in old prisons for some reason.
It is an odd thing to be into. What’s your strangest interest?
