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
