Getting There & Around
You can get to Fishguard from Ireland by ferry, which goes from Rosslare to Fishguard Harbour, just outside the town. Driving is fairly straightforward with the A40 from London finishing in Fishguard. There is also a train station connecting the town, though there are only two trains daily, timed to meet the ferry service to Ireland.
As a fairly rural place, there is not the best public transport system in the region. However, there are a few buses that can take you to nearby towns and villages such as Haverfordwest.« Hide
