“Quiet ruins”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Not much to see but a decent motte if you are taking a group of kids up to see what one was like...in the Swansea area.Next to a park and with The Ship & Castle pub across the rd. for a decent meal.Also adjacent to the Loughor Estuary with a good walk...suitable for dog owners, too. Remains of the Roman Bridge can be viewed at low tide. Beware of the dangerous currents and avoid swimming nearby.Decent fishing on an incoming tide, about 5 minutes away.Parking opposite, adjacent to the Loughor River Estuary. Pleasant to sit in/out of car and watch the birds and the river.

“call this a castle?”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

More like some rubble on a little hill. visit Kidwelly castle instead or if you want a ruined look on a larger scale than loughor, swansea castle is a better option

“Historic ruins, Free of Charge”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

I would have rated this as good, but the category wasn't available. Not signposted well but has nice surrounding views and walks
