Perched upon the cliffs, in the heart of the village, you can’t really miss the Norman’s Castle. The Castle occupies a commanding position overlooking the beautiful Manorbier Beach with the village nestled behind. Steeped in history and folklore this Norman gem has many secrets to discover.
The fairytale turrets, great hall, chapel and landscaped gardens (designed by Daphne Shackleton one of Ireland’s foremost plants women) offer the perfect place to soak up the wonderful atmosphere.
Tour the castle and gardens before having a well-earned break at the café. If you really get caught up in the romance, the castle is also available for weddings.

Explore the stone spiral stairways, rooms and corridors and experience how the residents of the castle lived over 900 years ago. Explore the village of Manorbier with a visit to the castle, the beach, The Dovecote and The Norman Church.
