Fishguard is a coastal town in Pembrokeshire, S.W. Wales. It is well known for its beautiful scenery; the coastline is comparable to that of Cornwall. Fishguard is in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.
Fishguard is made up of three settlements based around the shores of Fishguard Bay. Goodwick is the area in which the busy ferry port is situated together with the railway station and is where the roll on roll off ferry to Rosslare in Ireland departs from. Upper Fishguard is the main town centre while Lower Fishguard, ‘y Cwm’ lies at the mouth of the River Gwaun, hemmed in by the cliffs. Lower Fishguard is the original fishing village, dotted with picturesque fishermen’s cottages.
