Our Son and his Girlfriend were visiting us from Edinburgh and we decided to book the four of us on a tour of the Tayto Factory. We had a great time and it was made even better by our Guide Jill who gave us lots of information and of course laughs. We got to taste lots of crisps straight from the fryer with no flavour added and they were delicious. We also got to taste the Onion Rings just freshly baked and these too were so good.

Thank you Jill for making our trip to the Tayto Factory a fun experience.

There was only the two of us, but it didn’t matter we were treated the same as if a coach load had landed. Great fun meeting Mr Tayto himself and I have to say the tasting part had to be one of the highlights. Great to see the whole factory process and our guide was very informative and friendly. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Lauren our tour guide was very knowledgeable, helpful and kind. She showed us every stage of the crisp and snack making process. Found out lots about the hard work that goes into making Taytos and other products. Great range of souvenirs after the tour in the souvenir shop. Would visit again and will be recommending the tour to others.

Just home from a fantastic day out at the Tayto Castle Tour.

First impression was great as we were greeted by Tayto's friendly staff at reception.

The same member staff then gave us an introductory brief on the do's and dont's and demonstrated how to put on the hair net and apron with real hummer which had everyone laughing.

She then introduced Mr Tayto which again was very funny, and everyone was able to get group photos and selfies with him.

The tour itself was really interesting and our tour guide Lauren was really friendly and engaging, throughout the tour we were able to sample loads of different crisps at their different stages of production.

At the end of the tour each person got a six pack of crisps of their choice.

I would really recommend this a different day out for all the family.

Both my wife and I and our two kids all really enjoy our visit and thank you again to Lauren for a fantastic tour

I'm a support worker for an adult with a learning difficulty and she really wanted to go on the tour- she was not disappointed. The tour guides were very friendly and understanding, we had Lenore who struck a good balance between fun and informative. Free crisps of course, but it stands on its own two feet without them.

Parking isn't available but had no problem parking in the street outside. Tour is about an hour/ an hour and a half. Left Belfast at half 9 and was back for 3 o clock (and that was after staying to have lunch in tandragee), so a good, compact day trip.
They could make a bit more money with a cafe at the end so people get an actual lunch and not just a load of crisps!
