Customers Reviews of Gaol Quest.

‘As part of our work Christmas party we decided we wanted to something rather than the usual drinks and dinner. We had heard good things about gaol quest. We contacted the manager Sarah. After that nothing was too much trouble.

The tour was very good and very informative and lots of laughs.  We then started our quest We had 13 staff members present and everyone loved it. We did team building  exercises throughout the quest which were super fun. There was drinks both alcoholic and minerals left out for everyone which were available all throughout the evening  I would recommend any group to do this its exciting fun interesting and creates some friendly competition  between all staff.Sarah and her team are amazing and so helpful and fun. We even asked if we came back could they create new quest and they were willing to do it.-Aisling O’Mahony’

‘I attended the jail as part of a work Christmas adventure at the end of November 2016. I felt the tour was very well laid out with plenty of interesting historical information given throughout the tour. Our tour guide was exceptional .

Once the tour was finished the group activity games and hunt throughout the jail was thoroughly enjoyable. I would highly recommend this to anyway.

A great night- Patrick Lynam’
