The Castle is located on the top of the hill and you won’t miss it if you are heading to Three Cliffs Bay. May be it was the weather but I wasn’t impressed with it. It’s not really been looked after and more attention should...More

There isn't much left! It's a ruin and that's about it. There is no information about the history or anything at the site so you are left to imagine! The view down into the bay is amazing but you can say that about the whole...More

Google Maps took us to some small residential - full of potholes - road. We couldn't see a castle anywhere. We parked where Google said, and went for a stroll. We ended up on the gold course, and finally saw some ruins further down. We...More

It has history, mystery and stunning views....what more do you need from the top of 3 cliffs bay. It has walks and a nearby golf course. The sand that sent over by Irish leprechauns after a mistaken identity resulted in a battle with the local...More

The castle itself is a bit disappointing but then it is old. Walk to it and you are surrounded with views of cliffs, sea and grassland. Pennard golf course touches the castle of offers a easier access across the land. Three Cliffs bay is just...More

We passed this ruin on our walk. There is not much to see of the castle, apart from a fine arch that has remained intact. There are however some fine views of the bay and cliffs from here. It would be nice if some interpretation...More
