Fishguard Pembrokeshire

Fishguard is an international port, and it welcomed its first passengers in August 1906 and was the final stop on the Great Western Railway. It was built with the purpose of attracting trans atlantic ships, but this never came to fruition and was and is predominantly used as a ferry terminal for passengers travelling to Ireland via Rosslare. Issues regarding the harbours design prevented ocean liners docking here, and as a result the engineer in charge committed suicide. Despite this, some liners  berthed off shore and passengers were transported by tender to shore/boat. The most famous of these liners was the Mauretania and the ill fated Lusitania.


It is now the shortest route to Ireland from continental Europe and currently offers 2 sailings per day. In its heyday, several crossings  were also offered to Waterford and Cork, and a fast cat service operated to reduce crossing time. For Stena Line Ferry sailings Click here
