We attended Escape HQ to take part in Groom on the Loose for my sister's Hen and it was a huge success. From the first time I got in contact, David and the team were fantastic and went above and beyond to help with our whole trip, they also created a fun atmosphere with lots of attention to detail. We had an absolute ball and Escape HQ was definitely the highlight of the weekend, it suited all ages. If anybody is thinking of going to Carlingford with a group of friends or a hen/stag I'd definitely recommend paying a trip here. Not only is everything taken care of for you it's excellent value to boot.

We visited Escape HQ on 26th March for a hen do. From start to finish the guys were fantastic, David is an excellent host and his team are great.

The activities they organised were suitable for everyone in the group and were great fun, a brilliant way to get to know people too.

Everyone really enjoyed it and I would very much recommend it to anyone.

Had a great time completing our second escape room here. Prison Break was our favourite of the two but we are really looking forward to coming back for the Christmas one. We recommend Fusion Confusion for first time escape room peeps and families with young children. Contrary to the picture below we escaped!

We had a brilliant time on our bikes from Escapes HQ. David was excellent in his communication and very quick to respond to emails. He provided us with a map and told us to keep the bikes for as long as we wanted and no hassle at all. Bikes worked very well without any bother and we were offered side bag for our stuff too. It was so handy with returning them too and all done so well. Would definitely recommend here for bike hire.

Family of 4 rented bikes to cycle Carlingford to Omeath greenway. A beautiful sunny Sunday, we rang to book only one hour before. The really friendly chap said all the bikes were out but he could get us sorted if we arrived around 2pm (which was what we had planned). If he couldn’t provide bikes, he would see about another company locally helping us.
Luckily, he had 4 fab bikes when we arrived. He kitted us out & ensures we were comfortable, adjusting seats & advising where to go. Also ensured we had his phone number just in case.
A really super service and we felt he really appreciated us giving his company our business. Would highly recommend Escape HQ for your bike hire

The escape room concept was really unique and the overall execution was really good. The time goes so quickly when you are in there but we managed to escape with the helpful hints from staff lol. Overall we had a great experience and it was a lovely unique activity to try.

Escape HQ were brilliant to our group . We booked them for a hen party and they did not disappoint. David looked after everyone . He supplied us with bike bags and helmets . Also there are Ebikes available . We really enjoyed cycling the greenway . David even drove up to the start of it to show us where to go . And he made sure everyone was ok with their bikes . At the return of our journey David was so kind and gave the bride a wedding gift . We thought this was so thoughtful. We will defo be back. Thank you David !

We played the Infiltrate escape room and it was excellent! Really enjoyed it and had such a laugh. We manage to escape with 12 seconds to spare! Thoroughly recommend this to couples or groups. We will definitely be back to try Fusion Confusion.

Our first family reunion in 3 years and visited EscapeHQ. We visited escape room and also hired bicycles to ride Greenway. Conor was our host and was excellent. He was helpful and we had a good laugh.
