We had such a lovely tour around the tayto factory. Lenora was a brilliant host and it was interesting to hear about the history as well as all the different companies they make crisps for. The crisp tasting on the way round was the best...More

Highly recommend the Tayto Castle factory tour if you are a fan of Tayto crisp and snacks - you get to see the whole process in the factory from potato to packed bags, and sample loads too! We had a great time

Having previously sampled the Dublin Theme Park factory tour I thought this one was absolutely brilliant. Admittedly it does not have a theme park (or even a cafe) attached but as an actual tour of a potato crisp factory it is miles ahead. For a...More

Cannot recommend this tour enough. Excellent, well planned and executed tour with fantastic tour guides. Fun tour and educational - plus free crisps!!!

Admittedly we were pretty much the only people there who didn’t have kids, but we loved this just as much as all the children! Being from Australia (and loving Taytos), the novelty of having a factory in a castle never wore off! All of the...More
