We went as a family group. 4 adults 4 kids. (kids aged 11 to 8) One of the children had had a sensory panic attack and... David dealt with it perfectly. The game itself was very exciting and It was really great fun. Would highly recommend it. David is great fun and explains all. Cant wait to return to try out the new room.read more

Great games, just what we needed to keep the party going when we were all hungover and tired! So much fun and David... made it a funny, laid back game while still having a air of competitiveness without taking it too seriously! The Prosecco help too! The guys running it couldn’t have been more welcoming and went out of their way to make the weekend as a whole an amazing experience! Highly recommend!!!read more

Hi, I wanted to leave some feedback about the Escape Rooms Activity we took part at Escape HQ Carlingford on 01st June... 2019. It was brilliant. Thoroughly recommend it to any1. Suits any age range, we had in our group youngest from (17 - 34) and it took All team members to complete the challenges and make it out of the room on time. Will defiantly be trying it again soon. The staff at Escapehq were so friendly and great craic, made us feel so welcome and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you All for making our Bride to be Anna Marie Martin's day🤣👍🥂read more

A MUST!!!When me and 4 other mates arrived at Escape HQ (1:40) on Sunday we had been met straight away by an up beat... and welcoming guy. We had thought we booked a space for 2pm online the day before but we had made a mistake on the booking (nothing to do with the drink on Paddys day haha) but that wasn’t a problem as the room would be free in 30 minutes. The man nicely pointed us towards the closes bar which is just across the street to enjoy a pint before he would drop us a text when the room becomes free. I have never taken part in something like this before and I can say that i will 100% be going back to try the other rooms. My girlfriend works as a travel agent in Fermanagh and plans a lot of hen and stag dos sending them to Carlingford all year round and I couldn’t recommend this anymore to her and the groups she sends. So many laughs plus getting a bottle of shamps at the end is always a bonus. Wee tip DON’T OVER THINK THINGS haha!!!read more
