About
Ireland's top escape room with a difference. Our escape rooms SOS and CONVICTS are on board the Zorg Ella boat in Dublin's city centre. You and your team have 60 minutes to escape from inside the ship by solving a series of puzzles and challenges. Uncover clues, solve riddles and overcome obstacles to complete Ireland's newest and most thrilling escape room. Two games to choose from: SOS: 2 to 6 players. Your mission is to gather information, restore power to the boat and escape – before it’s too late! CONVICTS: for 4 to 10 players. You and your team are convicts, imprisoned on the good ship Zorg Ella. Using your wits, intelligence and teamwork, can you work together to escape before the ship departs for the colonies? Recommended by The Irish Times, Irish Independent, Conde Nast Traveller, and many, many more.

This was absolutely fantastic. Me and 4 of my buddies went for my birthday and we had a blast in the Convicts room! Big thanks to Eoghan and Grace, we'll definitely be back for SOS.

We had so much fun doing this escape room. We did the convicts game. We went for a birthday party and we thoroughly enjoyed our time. The puzzles were engaging, and challenging but when they were too difficult Eoghan and Grace were on hand with clues. They made the experience really enjoyable. We could not recommend more for something to do in Dublin, it is definitely something to do as a group of friends!

In the past year or so my girlfriend and I have started to do escape rooms as a hobby and we both agreed that this was our favourite so far. We did the S.O.S room and it was a great experience. It was very realistic and interactive. We both thought it was unique which set it apart from the rest. Our game master was Key who was absolutely great- didn’t give hints when we didn’t require them but knew when to ask whether we did want one. Would recommend 100%!

It was really fun and exciting!
We were greeted by one of the workers, Grace, who was super friendly and set a really good vibe for the place! She was kind and easy to talk to, only gave us clues when we really needed them ( which was twice) and never hurried us.
The clues were not too too easy to find (maybe just for us haha) and the place actually uses the boat theme really creatively and not just random letters you have to use but it truly feels like you are escaping a boat! The decor is amazing and true to the boat theme, they spend a lot of time creating the rooms. You have to find more than one clue and answer in the rooms, so each room is full of stuff to fiddle with.
The hour is a perfect time for the challenge, we had only 5 minutes to spare! Would reccomend to check out!

14 of us booked in for a birthday and our experience was amazing!! We all had such a great evening with Grace and Key, absolute super stars. One group played SOS and the others Convicts, we all failed but the laughs we had were well worth deportation.

My friends and I had never done an escape room before and I was a little bit worried but it ended up being so much fun! And more engaging than I even thought it would be. Our game master Grace was so lovely and helpful and really made the experience that much better!

We did this fantastic game recently.
We were 4 of us divided in two teams.
Eoghan and Grace have been amazing and of great help and support during the game.
This is an immersive experience challenging yourself and the way you understand and see things.
Not easy, but being in team and with some extra hint from "outside" you can escape and save your life.
Not adaptable for whom believing is the best in the world!

Oh. My. Neptune. Was this an awesome and unique experience - even among many other escape rooms I've done before. The historic Dutch boat in which you experience a hair-raising 'sink or die' story in 60 minutes looks unassuming from the outside but it sure can get appropriately scary and confined on the inside. A very entertaining, professionally run escape room that never leaves you wondering what TO DO next, merely, what might HAPPEN next. Our hosts Eoghan and Grace were delightful and made us feel we were in safe hands - as safe as you can feel 'sinking in SOS'. ^_^ I would do this again in a heartbeat, it was so much fun.

We did this Escape Boat with a team of 6 colleagues as a team-building activity and we were not disappointed! It was our first time doing an escape room in general, and it was a really great and unique experience. There are some short / small spaces in the boat, so if you suffer from claustrophobia be aware.
Key was our game master/captain and she was awesome! she explained all the rules, health and safety and everything we needed to know and took a great photo of us at the end too :)

Would definitely recommend it!
