Welcome to Fishguard & Goodwick
Fishguard and Goodwick are the twin towns at the heart of North Pembrokeshire, the hub the outstanding outstanding natural beauty that blends the allure of sea, towering cliffs, the Preseli Hills, ancient standing stones and delightfully mysterious valleys such as Cwm Gwaun.
Ideally situated for gentle and challenging walks we’re perched right on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, surrounded by Britain’s only Coastal National Park. You’ll find family owned shops and businesses as well as Galleries, Gift and Antique shops – and plenty of quality or budget Cafés, Pubs and Restaurants when you refreshing – all offering a warm Welsh welcome – Croeso!
There’s always plenty to do in North Pembrokeshire whether adventuring with sailing, kayaking, coasteering or hiking to sitting on a beach with an icecream! For rainy days there’s the gym and swimming, Theatr Gwaun’s digital cinema, Goodwick’s prizewinning Brass Band, live music or one of our renowned music festivals.
Fishguard’s Last Invasion Tapestry marks the 1797 invasion by Napoleon’s French troops defeated by local militia at the Battle of Fishguard. It’s said to rival the Bayeux Tapestry, it’s certainly more colourful and detailed.
With Stena Line ferries sailing twice a day to Rosslare in Ireland, Fishguard is a favourite stop off point before crossing the Irish Sea. And, encouraging you to stay is wealth of accommodation, from camp sites and self-catering to bed and breakfast, quality guest houses and hotels.
