I've always wanted to visit Tayto Castle but left it too late to book last year. Better organised this year and brought the two kids, aged 9 and 10. We were well warned about the smells and noise so I was prepared for the boys' complaints (they have sensory issues). Being the real factory floor and not a simulated experience... More

Visited as part of training course for young people. Lenore was our guide, and was absolutely fantastic, patient, informative and made the tour really interesting for the young people. I would visit again, and would recommend this as a must do visit for anyone.

Thank you Jill for taking us on our tour. We really appreciate you showing us around the factory. We now know lots and lots about how our favourite crisps are made. It was great to see the work of a factory up close - to see, to hear, to smell and taste!! All the pupils and staff from Glengormley High... More

For interest and entertainment, this can't be beaten. Enter Tayto Castle through a secret green door behind the war memorial, and start on a tour of a working crisp factory. Getting on the shop floor of a working food factory is a rare and special experience these days, especially with children age 7 and 10. Jill, our tour guide, was... More

Had a great tour today of the Tayto Factory! Friendly, informative staff made it a very enjoyable experience, and we got to see the whole process of how the crisps are made! The highlight of the tour was getting to meet Mr Tayto and our free 6 pack of crisps! Definitely be back again real soon!! :)

My fiancée and I went here last week. We are both 24. Our tour guide was Jill and she was fantastic ! Very funny and knew her stuff at the same time. She knew how to keep the group entertained. The tour is Intetesting but at times very nosey making it hard to hear what the guide is saying. Tour... More

We visited Tayto Castle on 31st March. One point to note, ask about children's age/height when booking, one poor child was turned away because she was too small. Luckily her grandfather went out with her. Note for women: If you wear nail varnish, you will have to wear rubber gloves throughout. Before the tour starts, you are given a safety... More

We had an absolutely brilliant time at Tayto - well, once we'd figured out where to park anyway. It turns out you're not supposed to park in Tandragee Castle itself and should instead park on the main road and walk in. Sadly not obvious which contributed to us being even more late. Anyway, once we arrived at the right place,... More

We had a great tour at Tayto today in Tandragee. Our guide named Mary was excellent and we got plenty of crisps and snacks to try ! The tour was very informative and Mary never tired of answering our questions. The tour of the factory was very comprehensive and very interesting. The only problem all of us on the tour... More
