Each time I go I learn something different and fascinating. Thank you Jennifer, Lynore and Jill. These ladies make it seem that you are the first they've ever taken around. Their dialogue is fresh, witty and always appropriately geared to their audience. Best tip I can give is 'eat no breakfast'. Loads of free samples and a souvenir shop at... More

Spent a very interesting hour being shown around the factory and having a very lovely and lively commentary from Jill, our fantastic tour guide. She put us through our dance moves and tested our memories with facts about the famous TAYTO crisps! Plenty of free samples to try, literally hot out of the fryers or oven, you couldn't get fresher... More

Fascinating insight into how the famous TAYTO crisps are made. Plenty of free samples as we toured the factory and free goodies at the end of the tour. Well worth a visit.

Booked a month in advance to be told on arrival that the fryers were broken so we wouldn't get seeing anything working. Which was very disappointing and defeated the purpose of us booking. The tour went ahead and we were compensated with an extra bag of crisps but having paid £18.50 for 2 adults and 1 child i would have... More

We were welcomed by Tayto staff when we arrived and went to get prepared for the tour. It took us a while to get sorted and prepared for the tour to begin. We had an excellent safety talk and the lady was very informative to pupils. The pupils loved the tour and loved getting to taste all the different crisps... More

Went here on 3rd Jan 17, tour was very interesting from start to finish. We got to meet Pat at the start. We were then taken all around the working factory starting from where they store the potatoes to cleaning, slicing and then frying them. Every step of the way you get to sample crisps and get a 6 pack... More

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
