The family really loved visiting here, the staff were friendly, the place is beautiful and views are spectacular. Only bit of caution is the steep uneven climb, if like my wife, you have walking difficulties, then be extremely careful.

It'd be one of a kind place, if not for Mont San Michel in France: St Michael's Mount is an island with the high tide, linked to the mainland by a nice causeway when the tide is low. Beautiful, nice, special.

Well the Castle itself is open between 10am to 5.30pm so I would imagine that the boats would operate, depending on tide times of course, probably an hour before and until the final visitors have left in the evening. If you... More
