Site Overview

A final resting place for many wealthy citizens

Peel Castle is situated on St Patrick’s Isle. The isle has been occupied since prehistoric times and also shows evidence of early Christian significance. It was a significant Viking-Age burial ground, the final resting place of many wealthy citizens, including a pagan lady with a stunning necklace.

The isle became the site of the fort of Magnus Barefoot around 1098 and continued to be strategically important during the period of the Norse-ruled Kingdom of Man and the Isles.
