Full description
Transport yourself back in time to Wicklow Gaol in the 1700s. Enter a grim, three-dimensional world of corruption, rebellion, and dark dungeons. Meet some of the Gaol’s most notorious prisoners and one of the Haunted Gaol’s famous ghosts. Start the ‘Gates of Hell’ virtual reality tour by meeting your costumed hosts. Enter an authentic prison cell and get fitted with a state-of-the-art headset.  Take a 360-degree look around the gaol and, in a later scene, take flight for an aerial view of the building. Follow three different stories to cover the 300 years of Wicklow Gaol's history. Once your virtual reality experience is over, leave the cell and roam free around the gaol at your leisure.
