It is small but there are towers to go in to and a rampart with fantastic views over the river Teifi. Great for children to run around and climb, grass, picnic tables. The village is interesting with river walks and a cafe opposite

No on-site parking but make the effort. Really interesting only partly ruined castle in incredible surroundings. Ground floor mainly on one level but the spiral staircases access upper levels with even more impressive views.

Nice ruined castle hidden in the backstreets of Cilgerran. You can walk up the towers and get a great view across the valley, although it was pretty windy when we were there!! No parking on site - although there are streets you can park on very close by - I suspect the locals dislike this due to the number of ‘disability don’t park here’ notices we saw! A nice way to break a journey though.

We went on a typical Welsh, windy, rainy day. It was brilliant walking around the old ruins of the castle, it was very interesting. Would recommend a visit to anyone.

This is a cute little castle which we happened to be passing so dropped in for a quick visit. To be honest you only need a quick visit as it is genuinely small and parts of it were shut off for some reason when we visited...in fact we spent longer looking for somewhere to park than visiting the castle (and this was in November...peak season must be tricky). A dog friendly location, so great for Holly Terrier. We also got free entry as the ticket office was unmanned...so gets a 'very good' rating on the back of that !
