“ "Great riverside walks in both directions. Down river you can walk all the way to Cardigan" ”
Cilgerran Castle, which overlooks the Teifi, a river where coracles were once common, is almost 800 years old.
It has a stunning location. Perfect for repelling attackers. The Normans first saw the potential and established an early ‘ringwork’ castle here, but the imposing masonry castle we see today was probably the work of William Marshal, earl of Pembroke.
Cilgerran is first mentioned by name in 1165, when the Lord Rhys captured the castle. It was retaken by William Marshal in 1204, only to be taken again by the Welsh during Llywelyn the Great’s campaigns in 1215. However, eight years later, William’s son, another William, regained control.
