Places to stay in Fishguard

The coastal town of Fishguard, and its twin town Goodwick, make the ideal setting for a break beside the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Whether you like the idea of Fishguard Fort – a viewpoint with cannons - or are seduced by a remote and stunning coastline that boasts the charming lighthouse at Strumble Head, you won’t be short of things to do once you’re there.

A train station that opened in May 2012 means easy travel between Fishguard, Goodwick and the Coast Path, which opens up your options even further. Go scuba diving together or simply take your family to enjoy the arts and crafts shops in the pretty towns; you can be as active as you like.

Five Free Things To Do In Fishguard

Town Hall
The Last Invasion Tapestry in Fishguard Town Hall is a must-see. It’s been compared to the Bayeux tapestry, but tells an entertaining and even humorous story of the 1797 invasion of mainland Britain.

Fishguard Fort
Created on a site overlooking Lower Town Harbour, this fort was a response to the threat of raiders in 1780. Eight nine-pounder guns once protected this land, and kids will love to see the cannons there today.

Walking and Hiking
You simply can’t visit this part of the world without marvelling at the scenery, and going for a coastal walk with the family is a great way to do just that, while getting some fresh air into everyone’s lungs to boot.

Birdwatching
The cliffs near Fishguard make the perfect place to go birdwatching; no wonder celebrity birdwatcher Bill Oddy was called in to open an observatory for the hobby in 1988. You’ll find it in the World War II lookout building at Strumble Head.

Picnic in the Bay
Watch the Fishguard to Rosslare ferry set off on its journey from a vantage point on Fishguard bay as you tuck into your sandwiches – the perfect way to spend some quality time together.
