We always visit the castle here when we stay in Laugharne. You walk off the main road into the village and step into this haven of peace and tranquility. We walk through the gardens and then explore the castle. It's beautiful. Then we sit on the bench under a trailing rose and listen to the birds. Lovely.

Nice ruins of castle, with nicely treated gardens. The nature around is also very pretty so in sunny day it´s great opportunity to explore some history and nature in one day.

Although I have visited Laugharne village several times over the years, this was the first time I visited the castle. It's well looked after by the CADW, and only cost £2.80 entrance (concession). It's a small area with nice garden surrounds, the views over the estuary from the castle walls are stunning. Well worth a visit.

Lovely little castle. You are able to climb a tower and the views from the top are lovely. A nice piece of history

Really enjoyed our visit. It was interesting, peaceful and the gardens were lovely. Well worth the climb to the domes tower for the fabulous views, and I loved the little summer house that was used by Dylan Thomas. Shame there isn't more information on site of how different sections would've looked, but over all a pleasant visit. Lovely gift shop... More

We were looking forward to visiting the castle but it must be one of the only places in Laugharne which isn't dog friendly even though it is only a ruin. We were very disappointed not to to be able to go round and it must have lost the castle about 20 to 30 pounds which we would have probably spent... More
