This tour is very cheap and represents fantastic value for money. The guide was excellent and very knowledgeable, it was absolutely fascinating to be able to walk through the jail and listen to the expert commentary. I was only in Belfast for a short time but the tour is not too long and easy to to fit into a busy schedule. Highly recommended.

This is definitely a MUST DO if you visit Belfast. A very informative and fascinating tour, thank you Iain our guide. the prison is easy to get to via local bus service 57 that drops you off right outside the gaol entrance.

We had been meaning to take this tour for some time as we had heard some great reviews. We were not disappointed. The Gaol was well signposted with ample parking space. We were able to collect our tickets at reception and we just arrived in time for the next tour. Charlotte our tour guide was so informative and gave us a fabulous insight into the history of the gaol. She explained everything with great enthusiasm. Well done Charlotte. We were able to enjoy a tasty meal in the restaurant afterwards with a 10 discount if we produced our wrist bands which we had received when we got our tickets.
