ASYLUM is a special HALLOWEEN edition of our Jailbreak Escape Room! Set in a real dungeon cell, which used to be part of the infamous Donegal Lunatic Asylum beneath Lifford Old Courthouse, you and your group will be placed in a cell. With completely new puzzles, and a few extra nasty surprises your group will have to work together to find clues in the room and solve a series of puzzles to save yourselves!  With only 60/30 minutes to escape, do you have what it takes to make it out alive?

ASYLUM is a unique and enjoyable experience for all kinds of groups, from friends to business team-building. If you are looking for a fun group activity that’s different from anything you’ve done before (and believe us, you’ll never have done anything like this before), then this is the activity for you! It’s the new sensation taking the world by storm – DON’T MISS OUT! AVAILABLE NOW – CALL (00353) 74 91 41733 to book your timeslot. Available for groups of 2-6 players.  Larger groups can compete head to head. €12 each / €6 Junior Asylum

For 2019 we’ve added Junior Asylum, a family friendly 30 minute version of the game.  Please note it is still done in low light conditions!

How long does it take?

You have 60/30 minutes to escape the room.  We like to allow 5-10 minutes each side of your attempt to prepare you for the room and talk to you about your experiences afterwards as well as getting a photograph.  We ask you to please arrive on time for your booking as the room needs to be reset for the next group in.

How hard is it? 

You will find a lot of the challenges involve common sense rather than just intellect. Your group will require team-work and brainpower to escape but you do not need any special ‘skills’ to get out of the room and there are no physical challenges.

Is it fun? 

Of course! The escape room is designed to be entertaining and working against the clock certainly brings out the competitive side of people!

Is it scary? 

Asylum is NOT intended to be a haunted house so if you are expecting to be scared out of your boots, then you are probably better looking elsewhere.

What happens if we get stuck on a puzzle?

Don’t worry! There will be guard on standby with extra clues if you need it!

Are you allowed to bring phones inside? 

You are allowed your phones in with you but please note that selfies, photos, videos or the use of apps are not allowed while in the escape-room so as not to spoil the experience for others. There will however be plenty of opportunity for some photographs at the end with lots of props and signs to let everyone know how well you did!

I’m no good at Math! Will I still be able to play? 

Don’t worry, beyond some very basic math, you’ll be fine!

What should I wear?

You can wear whatever you like in our escape room. We wouldn’t recommend heels and we do suggest as these are genuine 18th century prison cells and can get a bit chilly that you may want to bring something warm, but anything can be worn.


What ages can play? 

The game is primarily designed for adults and so we would recommend that only those over 12 play due to the complexity of the puzzles.  Please note that ALL groups must contain at least one person over 18.  Without this you will not be allowed into the room!

For Junior Asylum we’ve found that 8+/9+ is usually fine, but please be aware that it takes place is low light conditions with a few scary things thrown in!
