Jailbreak is the North-west’s first live escape room! Set in real Dungeon Cells beneath the Old Courthouse, you and your group have been sentenced to death for a crime they didn’t commit and locked in a jail cell.

With only 60 minutes to escape, your group will have to work together to find clues in the room and solve a series of puzzles to save yourselves! Do you have what it takes to make it out alive?

Jailbreak Lifford 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, 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. 6+ can compete head-to-head. €12 each.


When can I play? 

Jailbreak is available during our regular opening hours of 10.00am – 5pm, 7 days a week.  Booking is highly recommended as sometimes the room may already be in use.

It is also possible to attempt Jailbreak outside of these times.  Available time slots can be seen here.  Simply find the slot that you would like and book it by calling or emailing us.  Booking is essential.

To book for one of these, or a regular time slot please contact: (00353) 74 91 41733 or email: liffordoldcourthouse@gmail.com

How long does it take?

You have 60 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 often 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!

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 (everyone gets 3 lifelines) but remember, part of the fun is trying to get through it and being able to say you didn’t need any!

Are you allowed to bring phones inside? 

You are allowed your phones in with you but please note that selfies, photos or videos 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? 

Beyond knowing the basic numbers, you will not need any math skills.

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 if I have a bigger group?

If you have a bigger group (more than 6 players) then you can make Jailbreak even more exciting by adding an extra competitive element as we can open up to 6 rooms to allow you all to compete not only against the clock, but against each other.  Please note that we do need prior notice of larger groups.

What ages can play? 

The game is primarily designed for adults and so we would recommend that only children over 12 play due to the complexity of the puzzles. If there is anyone in the group under 18 then they must be accompanied by someone 18 or over.
