Welcome to Criccieth!
Criccieth, is a charming, timeless seaside town that offers the perfect mix of stunning landscapes, friendly locals, and rich history. The town is nestled between the sea and mountains, providing captivating views of Cardigan Bay, Harlech Castle, and the mountains beyond.

Criccieth Town & Local Attractions
Criccieth has two beaches, each located on either side of the Castle headland. The town also boasts several local eateries, including the famous Cadwaladers ice cream shop, Castle Fish & Chips, Poacher’s Restaurant and The Moelwyn. Perhaps the most popular of all is Dylan’s restaurant, located at the end of the promenade in a Clough Williams-Ellis (Portmeirion architect) designed art-deco glass-fronted building, which overlooks the bay.
Criccieth also offers fine gift shops, a deli, a butcher, a baker, several popular pubs, and a train station that takes visitors on day trips down the coast. Dolphins and seals can be seen at certain times of the year, and starlings swirling at dusk to roost in October high over the town are a sight to behold.
