What used to be a prison from 1796 to 1924, now houses exhibitions on political history. In the past, the prison was notable as it witnessed executions of many Irish revolutionaries. One of the highlights of the museum surely is the Proclamation of the Irish Republic.
In addition, this place is now a part of popular culture. It has been featured in various films, TV series and it was also the set of U2's music video to "A Celebration".
