The time-worn remains of the castle at Newcastle Emlyn are to be found on a picturesque, grassy site overlooking a loop of the River Teifi. The Castle dates from the 13th Century, was strengthened in the 14th century, was then badly damaged in the 15th century and ruined in the Civil War when the walls were destroyed. The gatehouse, added in the 14th Century and the south tower are what remain of the original structure. There is a dungeon on the left hand side as you enter through the gatehouse.

Visitors can walk round the remains of the castle and the surrounding loop of the Teifi River. Please note that dogs must be kept on leads as sheep often graze the area.

A pay and display car park is adjacent to the castle grounds, turn off the main street in Newcastle Emlyn behind the Market Hall.
