Wicklow’s Historic Gaol
This is fast-becoming one of the most iconic ‘must-visits’ on the trail of Ireland’s Ancient East. A major transformation of the visitor experience in 2014 saw the ancient prison become one of the country’s most high-tech virtual reality historic attractions.
Holographic projections of cruel prison guards, life-like mannequins of major historic figures and state of the art audio-visual systems recreate the sounds of the defiant cries of the 1798 rebels, the famine era, the War of Independence and the Civil War.
The replica two deck transportation ship, meanwhile, now features holographic interaction with the ship’s captain as visitors climb aboard the torturous 200-day journey to Van Diemen’s land.
