Fishguard (Welsh: Abergwaun) is small coastal town in Pembrokeshire, South Wales.


Fishguard is a port of entry into South Wales from Rosslare in south-east Ireland, and lies at the western end of a historic road to London, which eventually becomes London's Oxford Street, (The modern A40 by and large follows this route). The town has a population of around 4,000.

Historically attempts were made by the Great Western Railway to make Fishguard a more significant port to allow passengers from London a slightly quicker journey to North America, by traveling by train from Paddington to Fishguard and then join a liner, rather than taking the train from Waterloo to Southampton.

Get there[edit]

By train[edit]

  • Train services [1] are timed to meet the Rosslare ferry. There are some direct trains between Cardiff and Fishguard, however passengers will generally need to change in Swansea.

By boat[edit]

  • Stena Lines runs a ferry service from Fishguard to Rosslare, south-east Ireland, 92 miles (2 hour 10 minute drive) from Dublin.

Get around[edit]

  • Fishguard Folk Festival (Spring Bank Holiday) is the only annual folk festival in west Wales. Though a small festival it draws an audience from a vast rural area and is a focal point for local folk musicians, usually with guests from Cornwall, Brittany, Ireland and Scotland (the Celtic nations). It offers a fine variety of traditional and modern music, dance and song, and is based on stage performances held at venues throughout the town, such as the local Arts Centre, participation sessions in pubs, street performances and teaching workshops. There is a great deal to see and do for everyone. Families are welcome, though there are adults only sessions in some of the pubs in the evenings.
