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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A really fun experience and a good challenge! Maria was a great facilitator. I appreciated the attention to detail and the option of how many clues you need or don't need to get through.

A really fun and extremely immersive escape room. My husband and I completed the SOS game. We have previously done escape rooms in Dublin and this was up there with the best. Patrick was our host and we had a great time. Will be back to do the other game!

An experience that was pre-booked based on previous read reviews, and I must admit we weren't disappointed. A day and night away in Dublin with my sons and even thou we had limited time we were pleased that we squeezed this experience in.
Marta our Captain was welcoming, explained in detail everything that we needed to know, which enabled us to get the most out of the experience. We would certainly book again.

Incredible experience and very thrilling and thematic. The music was a nice touch. It was stressful but so fun and also satisfying when you finish the puzzles. It makes you feel smart. Marta was great. Five stars!

This is undoubtedly THE BEST escape room I’ve ever done, and I’ve done upwards of 10 now. This is such a unique experience, we did the SOS room, really well put together and the staff were beyond lovely. My partner and I came away buzzing from the experience. Well worth the money. Thank you so much, especially to Eoghan and Oonagh who were the hosts of our game.
