William Larnach built Larnach Castle for his beloved wife over 144 years ago and it stands proud as New Zealand’s only genuine castle.

15 years of painstaking construction by master craftsmen made this building a majestic and imposing mansion and one of the most iconic buildings in the country.

The castle is symbolic of Dunedin’s rich history and heritage and a visit to it is a must do for locals and visitors alike.

The castle has had many uses in its time, from mental asylum, to a hospital for soldiers to a nuns retreat. The ballroom was once even used as a holding pen for sheep long before the current owners took on the mammoth task of restoring the castle to its former glory.

Great day out in Dunedin

Beautiful castle/stately home, with interesting history. We visited on a really stunning day and it looked so lovely in the sunshine. Beautiful gardens to explore too. Can understand wanting to keep them immaculate but such a shame you can't bring your dog to wander through the gardens too.

Nice way to spend the morning/afternoon

Good fun, absolutely beautiful gardens and the castle was a charm to see. The Barker Family has done an amazing job with restoring the castle and grounds and turned it into an venue the public can appreciate and enjoy. Definitely recommend having lunch here as well.
