We investigate the ground-state properties of a polarized dipolar Bose-Einstein condensate trapped in a triple-well potential. By solving the dipolar Gross-Pitaevskii equation numerically for different geometries we identify states which reveal the non-local character of the interaction. Depending on the strength of the contact and dipolar interaction we depict the stable and unstable regions in parameter space.
