This castle is awesome. At low tide your can walk out to it. The chances for pictures from shore at high and low tide are great. The tour of the castle is very good. There are a lot of steps. And views from the castle...More

We set off on the boat/bus about 11:30. It was full but the castle/grounds were surprisingly quiet. A good 3 hours spent here and it was all very interesting. Well recommended.

We attended Elizabeth Castle today using the DUKW vehicles for both journeys. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and found the re-enactments of firing a Cannon and Musket to be very informative. However, I think it’s fair to say that if you were of limited mobility you...More

Travelling with a young teenager, the Duck caught our eye. No more than 10 minute journey to the castle. Elizabeth Castle has seen a lot of history and covers a big area. We spent about 3 hours and could have stayed longer. Interesting. Small cafe...More

As far as I know. There is a good coffee shop there and certainly plenty of space. Worth contacting the attraction direct to be sure. Enjoy.

Hi, the castle is now closed until Spring 2018. You can still visit Mont Orgueil Castle in Gorey (open Friday to Monday).
