The castle is named after its late 16th-century owners, the Audleys, an Anglo-Norman family who held land in the area in the 13th century, It was sold, with the surrounding estate, to the Ward family in 1646 and used in 1738 as an eye-catching focus of the long vista along Castle Ward's artificial lake, Temple Water.

The site comprises of a number of paths to allow you to get to the Castle.

Lots of drama unfolds in Audley's Field and Castle by Strangford Lough. Visit and you can even explore Robb's Trail, one of two Game Of Thrones® self-guided cycling tours provided by Clearsky Adventure Centre in the Castle Ward Estate.

Audley's Field was used during Season 1 as King Robert Baratheon and his retinue arrive at Winterfell. It's the backdrop of Robb's Camp in Season 2 and the place where he first meets Talisa. Later on, Audley's Field is where Alton Lannister is imprisoned with Jaime (and doesn't live to tell the tale).

Universal Pictures filmed several scenes of the Dracula Untold movie at Audleys Field. This was one of many of the locations used for filming across Northern Ireland.
