We visited without knowing much about the tour and were pleasantly surprised. After donning various clothing (aprons, hairnets, etc) we were taken round the factory in small groups of about 12. We were watching the staff and machines in action from potato to packet and...More

Quite an experience. Just finding the place is a small victory and then sorting out how to get into the castle is another. Small door in the wall with a bell, really felt like we were standing outside Willy Wonka's factory. Eventually let in expecting...More

It’s so very rare these days to be able to take a tour of a food/drinks production factory where you can actually see the process taking place in front of you. The tour guide, Ryan, was informative and very welcoming. The constant supply of free...More

Don’t miss this castle on the hill! An air of Wonka intrigue combined with the warmth of Norn’ Irish hospitality makes for a spell binding tour of this famous crisp producing castle. We were given a warm welcome and friendly introduction to the castle by...More

I have wanted to see inside the Tatyo factory since I was a little girl (I am 40 something now...) and it didn't disappoint. Staff were very knowledgeable and gave us an amazing insight to the process of making crisps. We had a very warm...More
