Great walk - fully dog friendly, ignore the anticipated 1.7mile distance as it is further than this to walk the whole Dylan Thomas route and there is a very large hill to climb but overall a very nice walk, great views.

A little disappointing when we visited. Not much of a castle left. Lovely walk around Laugharne. Sandy walks to lovely eateries.

Lovely castle and beautiful place, took family to visit Laugharne after watching Keeping Faith. Worth a visit for the views from the towers. Enjoyable hour or so.

A fantastic castle to visit in the village of Laugharne. The castle is easy to find once in Laugharne, there is a free car park right next to the castle, this can get very busy at peak times and when the weather is good. It...More
