Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

Lena and Shauna and Niamh and Lucy popped in and had a go at the Lobby Puzzle -all did it around the 2 mins 40 second mark.

Lena and Shauna

Did both rooms (Inspectors & Mad hatter), cannot fault either of them or the owner who was very involved and really personalized the experience to make it extra memorable and enjoyable! Both are probably in the top 5 escape rooms out of the 20 I've done so far.

Jessica McGrath

But this weeks Group Winners for Santa's List are the Finnerans and guests - 44 minutes but no clues or hints!

Finnerian Family

An amazing time for people looking for something different to do, or experienced escape room players alike!

The owner, Ali, puts everything into making her rooms something special. Without spoiling the fun for anyone, there's nice personal touches and a great overall experience throughout.

Myself and my partner (who both are escape room enthusiasts) went along yesterday to do the Investigation room. We had a great time in it and managed to escape with 10 minutes left in the hour. We came back later that evening to do a newly built room, "Mad hatter", based on Alice in Wonderland. This room was even more special and is something everyone needs to try.

Compared to the rooms we've done in Dublin, Galway, as well as abroad, Celtic Escape Rooms ranks very very highly. Everything from the atmosphere, to the puzzle and build quality to the reception are simply fantastic.

For those of you looking for something different to do, this is the perfect place! I'd recommend giving the Alice themed room a shot first, you'll probably end up hooked right then and there 🙂

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an escape room?

Well, it’s the latest in live experiences. You are locked in a room and have one you have one hour to solve the quizzes, puzzles and clues and escape the room!

Is it scary?

On the contrary, it’s fun. Some escape rooms worldwide have scary escape room themes. We have chosen not to as we are a family run business and we feel that escape room games should be available to all. There are no clowns or zombies or anything that will make you jump or scared – just good clean thought-provoking fun.

Are there different rooms?

Yes, we offer two different rooms and room types.

Mad As A Hatter  – your aim is to help Alice and friends find the Queen of Hearts “Scents of Humour” before she shouts “Off with their heads!”  – suitable for ages 5 and up, and is set for 2  – 10 players! If you’ve never done an escape room before this is a great place to start.  Having said that, we have had great reviews from “professional” escape room goers too. There are no limits to the number of clues hints or spoilers – just have fun!

Inspector’s Office – The Inspector is hot on the heels of a known diamond thief, called Catriona Smith, alias “Cat”.

As Cat’s associate, you have 1 hour to find the Inspector’s diary which contains enough incriminating evidence to see you behind bars for a very long time. Grab the diary and get out!

This room is suitable from ages 8 and upwards and is set at a more challenging level. However, there are no limit to the number of clues you may have, the emphasis is on having fun. Ideal for 2 to 10 players.

Will I be trapped in the room?

No, of course you won’t, it’s natural to be apprehensive it’s only a game and you are free to leave at any time. There is a door bell in each room which you can press and come in an out as you choose. Both rooms are llight, airy and spacious but in the unlikey event you feel at all claustraphobic or worried, you’re very welcome to leave the door open – it won’t mar the expereince in any way as your aim is to leave through a different door.

The object of Escape Games, however, is to Escape the Room!

How long do I have?

You have One Hour, so after arriving we go through a few things with you and that’s it, you and your team are up and running.

We start the clock and you have just one hour to complete the room.

We also have a laugh afterwards with you and will take some photos so it’s a good experience overall.

We love it and think it’s the best job in the world.
