  • Don't let Google Maps fool you! We were going to pass Cilgerran Castle by, having looked on google maps and thinking it to be no more than a ring of rocks on the grass. Couldn't be more pleased to be ...  more »
  • The castle is signposted in Cilgerran but parking is limited in the immediate vicinity although there was the odd space in the road outside. The castle is entered through a bridge across the Moat. It’...  more »

  • Great. Ruins of a castle sitting above a gorge with amazing vantage point. It's princess's lineage can be traced down to JFK and Princess Diana. Easy to do in a morning with kids. Get up onto the walls and into the towers. Picnic spot too and a brilliant site manager who engages the kids and adults alike with the history of the place. Definitely recommended.
  • If you are a member this place is great. Lovely people. Really enjoyed it, but I would not have paid as it's very small
  • Lovely place,but if you follow the signs for the car park it's situated at the bottom off the hill next to the river, which is lovely and a great place for a picnic, but then you have to walk up a path to the top which is muddy and quite slippy in places when wet and is not suitable for wheelchairs or any one who doesn't like to walk,or unable to walk far. I would advise you to park in the street at the top it's a lot closer.
  • Great day with the Family. There were jesters to entertain the children and they were great. It took us a couple of hours we had lunch on the local pub and then went back for the Jesters performance. We had not really planed the day so it was a great surprise. It will take a family about 1.5h to explore normally.
  • Great value, well looked after site that is free for both NT and Cadw visitors and cheap for everyone else. Great fun for the children and fantastic views.
