  • It is a while since we last visited the castle and I wasn't that bothered about going back BUT how wrong I was. It was a terrible day with wind blowing the rain with a vengence (late summer !!!!) but ...  more »
  • Really well kept castle in the middle of Castletown. Nice guy met us as we walked in and gave us a brief description of the castle and explained how to get round. A lot of stairs to climb, but views from the top on a sunny day were amazing. Most rooms contain a description of what it used to be used for and some of them are set up with figurines and props to demonstrate. Best moment for me was learning the origins of the House of Keys. We used our National Trust cards to get free entry too!
  • Visited the Castle during the Isle of Man TT races in May/June 2017. Well worth a visit. Travelers are urged to attend the IOM Museum in Douglas before visiting the Castles. This gives you the history and time frames before visiting the Castle, you will then enjoy the Island, Castles, Towns and general tourist places mush more. Castle Rushen is a must!
  • Fun day out with the family. I would advise waiting until the TT season and buying a national heritage badge for £10 to get in all of the sites for free.
  • Very cool place! Incredible history, wonderful views, access to the entire castle, wonderful guides and staff. The into movies and some of the exhibits are a bit dated, but they really do paint the picture of the history and life in and around the castle. This is a must-see when you're on isle of man!
  • I've been to the castle many times in my life, both inside and out of school, and I still love that feeling of exploring this amazing castle. The recreations of historical usage has been incredibly helpful in my current history coursework!
