It’s worth a visit if you like culture and especially Dylan Thomas. However, it is closed and you can’t see very much. His desk, a few notes and his poetry, with a few personal artefacts. So a little disappointed. Still it was nice to see...More

This was a very good place to visit. It was amazing. So much information on Dylan Thomas. I was quite emotional being here. Made me proud to be welsh. We stayed and had fresh scones and tea

We have been here before. The exhibits are much improved with a video about Dylan and a detailed model of Llareggub that truly shows Under Milkwood. The Writing Shed remains as it was when the poet died. Leaving the Boathouse, follow the trail to the...More

We visited here in September on a free open day, which saved us £4.50 each which was a nice change. We would have happily paid as it was so interesting. Difficult to review as it will mean different things to different people. There is a...More

The walk to the boathouse is lovely, with views over the river. There are quite steep steps down to the boat house, but it is worth the effort. There is lots of information about Dylan Thomas and his writing. The writing shed on the path...More

We were in Laugharne to exercise the dog. We happened to walk near the boathouse and found that it was free to enter on this particular day. We took a browse in to this dog friendly place and had a no nonsense lunch whilst looking...More

So sorry, I didn't consider suitability for pooches at all. I would follow Malcolm's advise and phone first. Lots of nice doggie walks in the vicinity though!
