***We’re carrying out some repair work in our cells for the next few days so they’ll be no tours or Jailbreaks today, Wednesday 7th, tomorrow, Thursday 8th & Friday 9th.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused but we’ll let everyone know when we’re up and running again.

The Courthouse Bistro and Lifford Library are business as usual so don’t be afraid to pop in.***


Our ‘Live’ Tours let you take a step back in time, as you mingle with prisoners from years gone by in Donegal’s original county jail! Our experienced actor will take you down into the original dungeon cells where you will face arrest by our prison guard, suffer a lesson with the stern schoolmaster and try and avoid some pesky asylum inmates. Any caught misbehaving will be thrown in solitary confinement or even worse – the stocks!

The Courthouse experience is perfect for schools, families, coach trips, group tours – you name it! After the live element of the tour is complete you will be free to explore the ‘Mugshot zone’, in which you can dress up in old-style costume and take photographs! Don’t forget your camera!
