The Robert Boyle Escape Room: Immersive, Educational & Fun For All Ages

The Robert Boyle Escape Room in Lismore, County Waterford, is based on the story of the natural philosopher, chemist, physicist and inventor, Robert Boyle who was born in Lismore Castle in 1627. Boyle’s contribution to science was so enormous that he became known as one of the ‘Fathers of Chemistry’. Boyle, along with his contemporaries, such as Isaac Newton and Galileo Galilei, laid the foundations of modern science as we know it today.

Lismore Heritage Centre contracted our Abarta Heritage team to develop a meaningful but fun way for visitors to immerse themselves in the incredible story of Robert Boyle.  Rather than a traditional static exhibition, we created a memorable way for friends and families to connect.  A hands-on fun way to explore the story and learn about this titan of science.

The Robert Boyle Escape Room is decorated in the style of a seventeenth century study, complete with a gentleman’s desk, library, experiments table and contemporary music, that helps to immerse participants in the atmosphere of the period.  Many of the puzzles relate to scientific principles with players being encouraged to examine, weigh and work with numbers.  The room interprets Robert Boyle’s story in a creative and exciting way and encourages players to work as a team, using logic, creativity, strategy and communication skills.
