Cork City Gaol
Cork City Goal was a prison in Cork City which housed many prisoners over the years. While it might look like a fancy Victorian Castle it was a working prison with very difficult conditions for the people being held there.
Chester Beatty Library
Children’s section: https://chesterbeatty.ie/learning/
The Chester Beatty Library includes many of the artefacts collected by Alfred Chester Beatty over the course of his life. He was a rich man who made a lot of money from mining and used this money to collect rare historical items from all over the world particularly the Far East, as it would have been known in his lifetime. When he died, he donated his entire collection to the people of Ireland.
