  Lower Fishguard
by barryg23

Fishguard is a small seaside town on the north Pembrokeshire coast in west Wales and is a much underrated place. Many visitors, me included, use it for transit only as it?s a popular crossing point from Rosslare in Ireland by ferry. It was only on my most recent crossing that I stopped to look around the town.

The most interesting place in the town is the Royal Oak Inn which was the site of surrender by the French-Irish invasion in 1797, the last successful invasion of Britain. Also worth a visit is Lower Fishguard with its old fashioned, picturesque houses.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
