Excellent!

A lovely castle to walk around with great view of the estuary. Give it a try before or after a visit to Dylan's place.

Located in the pretty village of Laugharne, turn off at St Clears between Carmarthen and Tenby. The castle is more a romantic looking Castle than a defensive one, however it is in reasonable condition for a ruin. a small museum tells about the history of the Castle. All the staff are very friendly. worth a visit The pubs are good... More

We briefly visited here - had a very quick look at the Castle and the home - the"Boathouse" of famous Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. It was very quiet despite this being his 100th birthday month. The house of Thomas and the 'writing shed' were up a fairly steep path but worth a little walk to peek inside. No time to... More

The views were stunning and considering its mostly ruins the kids had a great time exploring, running around and climbing. Even though its ruins there is still plenty of information to fill the gaps in your own imagination

Situated in a quiet village the castle holds the centre of attraction but is supported by woodland walks taking in some historic places used by Dylan Thomas and a few shops, bars and tea rooms that are well worth a visit.

Although a ruin the Castle still maintains a sense of history. Very reasonably priced. Even the poor weather didn't detract from the enjoyment in fact it only enhanced the feel of what the previous inhabitants must have endured. Well worth a visit

This castle, one of many constructed by the Norman conquerors, is truly a magical place to visit. We were visiting the area with relatives from Australia who take great interest in matters historical, and they loved this place. The castle is hard-by the sea shore, and would have once dominated the adjacent port now sadly much silted up, providing secure... More

An amazing place full of history. character and atmosphere and of course you are in Dylan Thomas country. Lovely walks to the front of the castle which overlooks the amazing estuary. Plenty of parking but be careful of tidal flooding.

It was great to be able to explore this castle during the 'open doors' weekend. There was a little information guide for you to follow around but I felt there could have been a more information and history presented. The views over the estuary were beautiful in the sunshine and the grounds and castle remains were all maintained to a... More
