Lovely well kept castle with some very steep steps up to domed roof but well worth it to see the fantastic views & imagine life in the castle in its hey day.

Nice castle. Bit pricey to get in though for what's there. Lots to see on laughne itself but its a bit dead there and full of older people .

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.
