In1566 James Grace handed it over to the people of Kilkenny for use as a jail. The jail was used until 1920. In 1762 it became a courthouse.

For stealing bread you could be sentenced to3-4 years in jail. At least 4 people were in a cell.At least 100 prisoners were in there at any time.

In 1830 some rebuilding took place including the facade, balcony and the stone staircase.
