Excellent visit. Staff very friendly and helpful. We used the amphibious transport to and fro, which was good fun.

I love to do tours alone. We waled all over this place for hours. What an amazing place. WW2 and Reformation all in one. Hermitage Rock is cool. Climb to where Saint Heiler lived. Just a amazing island.

There's a lot more to see here than I imagined. They've put walk throughs with stories, facts and items from particular eras so you can see the history of the site. I haven't been inside the actual castle yet as we ran out of time!...More

Went over on the dukw, (swimming) and came back on it using wheels. The castle is well worth the trip. You can walk across the causeway but check the tide times carefully. Demonstration of musket and cannon firing is not to be missed! Walk along...More

Castle fine as castles go but the duckbus is a rip off. Firstly you cannot just get aride out to the island you MUST buy a ticket to visit the castle..Why. Also a single fair is oiverpriced to discourage walking out and riding back

We walked to the castle at low tide on a Saturday afternoon. When we got there we realised that to get back from the castle we had to book the ferry as the tide was coming in again. Luckily there’s a combined ticket for castle...More

We timed our visit so that we could walk across - didn’t realise just how far it was but definitely worth it. Castle is much bigger than it looks with lots of places to explore. Well worth a visit - just watch out for the...More

Yes, you can walk to the castle however you can’t actually go in the castle. I think it’s not necessarily worth the trip without the full visit. You could try searching Gorey Castle, which is a castle on the east side of... More

As far as I know. There is a good coffee shop there and certainly plenty of space. Worth contacting the attraction direct to be sure. Enjoy.
