Down County Museum

Special features include a replica cart used to take convicts south to Cobh for transportation to Australia, a replica of the iron stocks used as a punishment for male prisoners, and a replica of a platform gallows of the type built in Downpatrick after the 1798 rebellion. The gallows was made for the filming of the 1820s thriller the Frankenstein Chronicles (ITV- Frankenstein Productions), for which the gaol served as a filming location in April 2015.

In addition to the courtyards and the above features, the Museum has 2 ground floor rooms opening on to the courtyard for use by film crew/actors, a ground floor tearoom and a 2nd floor function room with WiFi and ground floor toilets in 2 separate buildings. Hire prices can be negotiated according to the extent of filming requested.
