Unfortunately the castle is in suin. Wouldn't recommend coming here specially to see it but worth a look if you're in there area. some nice restaurants in the area. Wouldn't recommend a visit on a Sunday as most of the town closes!

Blink and you will miss it , but don’t miss the tourist information centre , where a brilliant gentleman will tell you tales of ghost and scary stories about the Gaoul and parking space number 5. He will also tell you about other local location...More

Very little to see, and rubbish everywhere. Broken interactive stuff. Very little information about the history and difficult to find the place. Much better castles elsewhere in Wales.

there is not a lot there. The adversited gaol is literally 2 rooms to look in and the staff were too busy with a cameraman from some to talk to us

10-minute attraction, but lovely. Free and while in Carmarthen why not. However for a stunning castle visit Kidwelly Castle

Not a great deal to see as there is very little of the castle left standing, looks great from the square out side but once you go through the gate way there is nothing left on the other side.

Sorry, this should read Carmarthen, a typo which unfortunately is hard to rectify.
