Even though there was only two of us, they still took the time to take us around the factory, Mr Tayto even came out for a photo! Guide was really informative and friendly, really made the whole thing special, and the price was very reasonable! Would recommend!

Let's get one thing straight...When you book a tour of a working factory you have to realise that that's exactly what you get. This is not a theme park so don't be disappointed that there are no fun rides. I enjoyed my trip to the castle and found our guide lenore to be very pleasant and very informative and she... More

We had a fantastic time!! My Dad had always wanted to go, so we had a wee family trip out there (5 adults). The tour guide was lovely, very friendly and informative. The tour was very interesting and we were always invited to ask additional questions. We got to sample sooo many different crisps throughout the tour - we were... More

Tayto showed us how they make there famous crisps. A lot of people think tayto just make tayto crisps but they make so much more. I would strongly recommend that you visit tayto (Northern Ireland). This attraction is great for large groups. Remember to were little to know jewellery as the staff will ask you to take it off on... More

We went to the Tayto factory today. It was such fun,from the minute we arrived the staff were friendly. They made the tour very interesting for kids & adults. Would advise being hungry as you get lots of lovely crisps to try. It was great value for money and i would recomend it. We can't wait to go back 😃

We had a great tour at Tayto Castle today. We were taken around the factory by Jill (thanks Jill!) who managed a great mix of facts and humour to keep everyone engaged. From potato deliveries and storage, through cleaning, skinning and slicing (different sizes depending on the type of crisp being made), to cooking, flavouring and packaging. It's all covered....

We had a truly awesome tour on Tuesday with Jill. The boys were blown away and asked when they can go back. The tour was funny and factual and we all loved it. We are still shouting "who do we sell the bad ones to?" Loved it!

So we did the tour on 20th Sept. Our guide Jill was excellent, very welcoming and had great knowledge about the factory delivered in a very witty way. She made our day. The tour was very interesting and was not one of these tours where you have a mock up or wax works etc you actually do tour round the... More
