Owner description: Experience life as a prisoner in a guided tour with a difference at Lifford Old Courthouse. Learn about law and disorder as you are charged, sentenced and fingerprinted and shown your new surroundings. You won't just be told about the cramped conditions, the painful punishments and the disgusting diet, you'll get to experience them for yourself. Fun informative and unlike anything you've seen before, this is a guided tour with a difference and perfect for all ages. Think you have what it takes to escape from a locked cell in just 60 minutes? Well there's only one way to find out and that's to take on JAILBREAK. Jailbreak is a live escape room that challenges you to break out of our cell before time runs out, using only the items you find in the cell itself. Working as a team you must put all the pieces of the puzzle together in order to escape or a deadly fate awaits you! If you're looking for something different, then this is the game for you. Younger prisoners can even try it for themselves with our exciting Junior Jailbreak room, suitable for age 8+.

I accompanied an organised trip to The old courthouse. We had a great time. On our arrival we were served tea/coffee & scones (gorgeous) which had been pre ordered, before embarking on the tour. A number of my group had difficulties standing, so chairs were provided. It was very entertaining all thanks to Joseph our guide. Before leaving we had soup and a selection of freshly made sandwiches, all was lovely. Definitely worth a visit. Thank you again to all the staff there

Booked the junior jail break for a kid's party. Kids had a great time, cracking the codes/puzzles and afterwards, getting their wanted pictures taken and dressing up etc. Would recommend it as something a bit different for a kid's party.
