' Life at a slower pace...’
Fishguard and Goodwick are nearer to Ireland than England and provide the best base for walking the Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park or up into the gentle Preseli Hills from where the stones for Stonehenge were taken.
Life has a slower pace here, with a friendly climate and clean air. Here is a place to relax rather than rush about.
Some interesting history includes the last invasion of Britain in 1797 (the French) and the first flight from the UK to Ireland in 1912 (an Englishman). Some notable films were made here, using Lower Town as the attractive back drop.
A large range of family businesses provide for the needs of visitors and residents alike. Come by train right into the middle of the twin towns, or by ferry from Ireland (Rosslare to Fishguard) or by the A40 (60 miles beyond the end of the M4).

Fishguard announces its App (iOS & Android) for those wanting to find their way around this part of North Pembrokeshire. For smart phone users the full information from the town website is available, and can be downloaded into the phone memory for use on arrival.
