Castle
Sun - Sat 9:45 AM - 5:15 PM (Local time)
A fortified castle has stood on this site since at least 930, and it's easy to see why: it stands on the highest ridge in the vicinity, at the junction of the River Liffey and the now-underground River Poddle, so it was a strategic place to defend. And indeed, occupants of the site had to defend it frequently: The Danish Vikings that occupied a fortress here in the 900s were defeated by the Irish the next century. By the 1100s the Irish were defeated by the Normans. The next century the English set up shop here. And so on. Thanks to all these ransackings and a few disastrous fires, little remains from those early times. Most of the current castle dates to the 1700s. Today, the 44,000 square meter castle complex contains two museums, two cafes, two gardens, government buildings, a conference center and state apartments.

Historical Site
Sun - Sat 9:30 AM - 6:00 PM (Local time)
This prison-turned-museum played a crucial part in Ireland's past, serving as the lock-up for many leaders of Irish rebellions - and the place of execution for some of them - over the course of a century and a half. For decades after it opened in 1796, women, men and children weren't segregated, but rather held in a cell together, with little to keep them warm but a candle. The youngest person arrested and held in the prison was 5 years old. Many of those detained in Kilmainham were deported to Australia. The prison was seen as a symbol of British oppression and suffering, and the Irish Free State government decommissioned it in 1924. A tour will provide the gory details of Kilmainham's fascinating history.
