Ferns Castle

Built in the 13th Century, possibly by William, Earl Marshall, the castle then formed a square with large corner towers.

Only half of the castle now remains – the most complete tower contains a fine circular chapel, with carved ornament.

The tower also has several original fireplaces and a vaulted basement.

In the Visitor Centre, 25 panels – produced by the Ferns Tapestry Project – depict the history of Ferns.
