Cormac Davis, who recently took over Escape Limerick, is delighted to announce that the Escape Rooms will be reopening on Wednesday, September 8.

After working for Escape Limerick for three years, Cormac is very excited to get them back up and running again, “so we can provide our players with a fun, challenging and unique experience. I’ve been working for Escape Limerick for about 3 years now and I’m very excited to be taking over and to be able to get things up and running again. I am, of course, a big fan of escape rooms myself and I take much joy from being able to facilitate these experiences for other people. Escape rooms have been growing in popularity for a number of years now and they are very popular among tourists and locals alike.”

Escape Rooms are team-based puzzle games, played usually in teams of 2-6 players. Each escape room has a different theme, and players have 60 minutes to explore the room, find and decipher clues and solve a series of puzzles to escape the room and win the game. However, if you find yourself stuck, you can ask your game master for some help as many times as you need.

The Escape Rooms, located at 14/15 Nicholas Street, are very popular for parties, whether it’s a Hen party, team-building activity or date, these rooms are great for people who want to try something fun and different.

There will be a leaderboard system for those able to escape the rooms the fastest. If you’re feeling up to a challenge, you will be limited to just 3 clues from your game master to qualify for the leaderboard.

There are currently three rooms available, each of which can accommodate up to 6 players. For larger group bookings, you can book multiple rooms, split into separate teams, challenge one room each and see who escapes the fastest. Between game time, game briefing, and post-game discussions and team photos your booking should take approximately 1 hour 20 minutes. 

The rooms available are:

McCourt’s Classroom

It’s 1941 in Limerick City and it’s bucketing rain from the heavens. You and your friends run to take shelter in Leamy’s School. Inside you find that something’s not quite right. You go to leave but it’s too late, the door is locked behind you! You’ve got one hour to escape before the headmaster finds you and you get permanent detention.

Troubled waters

On your journey up the River Shannon towards Limerick, you and your crew have been captured after your galleon ship was attacked by pirates and plundered. You are now locked together on the pirate deck with the rest of the cargo when all of a sudden you hear loud noises and a battle erupt. The pirate ship is now under attack and sinking. You have one hour to escape before the ship sinks and you with it. Don’t forget to grab the treasure that was stolen from you.

King John’s Dungeon

You and your friends had one too many jugs of meade at the Castle Lane Tavern last night and got yourselves arrested for brawling on Nicholas Street. You wake up shackled in the dungeon of King John’s Castle and now you’ve got 60 minutes before the guard returns to figure out how to escape.

Escape Limerick reopens Wednesday, September 8, and is currently accepting and encouraging pre-bookings.

Special deals will be available for students and families with children under 16.

From Friday, August 13 to Friday, August 20, anyone who books an escape room for September will receive a €20 voucher for Escape Limerick for future games/gifting purposes.
