Port of Fishguard

The historic town and modern ferry port of Fishguard is in the north of Pembrokeshire. Since 2016  its new tender berth allows for larger cruise ships to moor within the port, in addition to the existing sheltered alongside berth for expedition size cruise vessels. Disembarking passengers are welcomed ashore by the Fishguard Bay welcome team and local dignitaries, along with traditional choral and dance displays on the quayside performed by local musical and school groups.

Coaches are provided at the quayside for onward tours and excursions, while restroom and refreshment vending machines are available on the quayside railway concourse. Fishguard Port is fully covered by digital CCTV. Berths 3 and 4 are fully fenced in a manner approved by UK Department for Transport who have also approved the temporary fencing on the cruise berths 1 and 2 which is in place for the entire cruise season.

A natural gateway to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, with its extensive flora and fauna and 186 (300km) coastal path walk, the port also offers easy access to the city of St Davids – spiritual capital of Wales – and to many other attractions throughout the county. The west, as Pembrokeshire locals and visitors will assure you, is simply the best.
