  • Love this place! Some of the rooms are furnished to give a feel for the time period. The tapestries alone are worth the visit.  more »
  • My favourite castle! Very well preserved its like stepping back in time! The staff are lovely and the admission price is great! No it isn't pram friendly because it is an ancient castle and it wasn't an issue back then but you can leave the pram down near the shop but I suggest a baby carrier
  • Visited in August 2016 and found it an amazing place. Absolutely bursting with information about the history of the castle itself and the Isle of Man. This is a real must-see if you are visiting the island! I love castles, but, although fairly small, this is probably the best I have visited!
  • Historic building. Presents the story of the Isle of Man well.
  • Great access to most of the castle, views over all of their areas. Dungeon so dark and sparse that my family would live for me to be locked up there 😂 Well worth a visit!
  • Excellent value, for money. Great displays to keep all ages entertained. If only they continued to use it as a prison instead of the luxury they get now.
