I went to visit the Cork City Gaol Heritage Centre http://corkcitygaol.com/ this morning. I had an urge to compare and contrast prison conditions then and now. I arrived at the front door and found 2 designated disabled parking spaces and further public parking nearby. So far so good. There was no ramp or other means to allow access .I managed, with a struggle, to get up the steps and into the entrance hall. I proceeded cautiously to the next door and saw another flight of steps, which was twice the size of the first flight. I turned around and left disappointed.
I have been in contact with the gaol and I have been assured that the venue is accessible. There is disabled parking available inside but a visitor must make contact by telephone to avail of the facility- 021 4305022. I have also been assured that signage to this effect will erected near the main entrance. I will call again at a later date to see if progress has been made.
