Dryslwyn Castle

B4297, Carmarthen SA32 8JQ

The remains of this 13th century castle is the only Welsh native castle that has three wards (courtyards within the walls of the castle). You’ll see the remains of the inner polygonal ward and traces of the middle and outward ward to the north east. There are also remains of a one-metre high curtain wall , which is the castle wall enclosing a courtyard, and a round tower, which was the inner stronghold of the castle. The castle is well signposted with many information boards and drawings showing you what the castle was like in its heyday.

This once magnificent castle stands high on a hill with the most spectacular and breath-taking views of three hundred and sixty degrees. You will love it here and even better, entrance is free too.
