Enter here through impressive gateway only to find this was the final cells before prison sex were hanged. Won't tell you more as it might spoil your visit. Just go in further to learn what these buildings were originally used for. Guaranteed to impress.

We popped in here on a rainy day and it was excellent. Lots of rooms to explore and then we had a guided tour of the old prison. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Our primary reason for visiting the Nenagh Heritage Museum was to visit the North Tipperary Genealogy Centre, but we also enjoyed seeing the museum exhibits. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, and are a great help to anybody with North Tipperary ancestry
