Castles in West Wales

Dryslwyn Castle

Dryslwyn Castle

Dryslwyn Castle ruins are set on the hilltop above the Tywi Valley, which is a site that is forever associated with the princes of Deheubarth, the kingdom in south-west Wales.

Its not know what the exact shape of this castle would have been, but present evidence suggests very strongly that the history of Dryslwyn Castle is entwined with the rule of the Lord Rhys (d. 1197). The castle has changed hands between the princes of Deheubarth and gradually evolved into formidable fortresses, however by the end of the Middle Ages the castle had become ivy-clad ruins and is nowadays managed by Cadw.
