Lifford Old Courthouse

Lifford Old Courthouse

The Old Courthouse in Lifford was built between 1746 and 1750. It also housed the county gaol/jail. Some crimes of theft resulted in "transportation" of prisoners, others warranted public hanging. Today it is a museum where visitors can experience life as a prisoner, but in a fun way.

Visitors can also enjoy good food and refreshements at the bistro, unlike the prisoners!
