I was very happy with the service of the staff and the timings were spot on from departure to arrival. Very easy booking in and waiting time was minimal I would definitely recommend the service and would use the service again in the future.

"first ferry ride, pleasantly surprised"

For Americans used to cars and planes, we didn't know what to expect and were pleasantly surprised. The ferry has very comfortable seats in a living room atmosphere with plenty of windows. There's a resturant, onboard shopping like on cruise ships, and seating on top (outdoors). They also played a movie on a big screen and had free wifi. We rode as pedestrians, but cars can ride too. The ports were easily accessible from the town centers by either train or a short taxi ride. It was a great experience and a nice alternative to flying.

Fishguard is a small town in Pembrokeshire, Wales. The port of Fishguard Harbour is not actually in Fishguard, but was moved to Goodwick a mile away at the start of the last century though the 'Fishguard' moniker remained has remainded.
The ancient Royal Oak Inn, was the scene of the last attempt to invade mainland Britain in 1797 by French and Irish forces. The hapless forces arrived to negotiate a cease-fire, which was turned by the assembled British into an unconditional surrender. The troops mistook their stovepipe hats and red flannel dresses for the outfit of a British infantry troop and instantly capitulated. Even if this is not true, it is an undisputed fact that 47-year-old cobbler Jemima Nicholas, the "Welsh Heroine", single-handedly captured 14 French soldiers. Her grave can be seen next to parish church, St Mary's, behind the pub.
Rosslare (Ros Láir in Irish, meaning "the middle peninsula"), is a village in County Wexford. Rosslare has been a tourist resort for at least 100 years. It prides itself on being the sunniest spot in Ireland, and records bear this out: Rosslare receives 300 hours more sunshine each year than the average place in Ireland. The long sandy strand is a Blue Flag Beach so it attracts swimmers and families, while there are a number of good golf courses in the vicinity. A long sandspit stretching north from Rosslare separates Wexford Harbour from the Irish Sea. Until the early 1920s, this spit stretched for many miles north, almost touching the Raven Point and giving a very narrow mouth to Wexford Harbour. At the end of the spit was a small fort called Rosslare Fort. In the winter of 1924-25 a storm breached the spit and it was gradually washed away. The fort was abandoned and now all that is left is an island at low tide.
