Peel Castle sits on an islet near the harbour of Peel. Built by William
le Scrope in 1392, the castle holds within its walls a wealth of history.
Situated on St Patrick's Isle and is believed to be the first place
Christianity was brought to the Isle of Man by St Patrick around 1226. The
islet site is covered in ruins starting from around 1000 AD.
The cathedral of St German took around 200 years to complete and feel into
dilapidation soon after the completion of the current St German's on Derby
Road in 1884. The curtain wall was completed in the 14th century.
On the west side of the island near the city of Peel on St Patrick's Isle.
Take any roads sign posted to Peel or the west. Once in Peel, drive along
the promenade and around the harbour to Peel Castle.
Plan your journey with our Bus and Rail Timetables.
The west side of the Island is not serviced by the Railways. Take a vehicle
St Patrick's Chapel.
St German Cathedral.

Visiting Peel Castle
At the Entrance, visitors are given a handheld audio phone. This will be
their guide around the Isle (around 7 acres). There is no set route, visitors just walk
around where they wish. All the buildings and ruins are marked with numbers
which can be keyed into the audio phone to hear a minute long explanation.
The site is covered in a thick blanket of grass, which is at its best during
the spring/summer months. There are no walkways inside the castle walls and
viewing the ruins is more of a gentle ramble. Once the inner castle has been
visited, do not forget about the path and walkway around the outer wall,
which has great views of Peel City and the sea.
