"Holyhead" Holyhead Tip by fishandchips

Holyhead, Wales: 2 reviews and 1 photos

Holyhead is the largest town on the island of Anglesey and is a busy ferry port.

From Anglesey, ferries operate to Dublin with the superfast ferry only taking 99 minutes to complete the single journey. I have only travelled in the other direction using Holyhead as my travel to location where we picked up a Hertz car & drove around a bit.

Near Holyhead are some ancient sites including burial chambers at Barcloddiad Yr Gawres and a church in the sea at Porth Cwyfan

The maritime museum in Holyhead is worth a look where there is lots of info about the 100 or so shipwrecks that have taken place in the vicinity.

Address: Anglesey

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
