Ferry from Rosslare to Pembroke

 

Overview

Route: Ferry from Rosslare (Southeast Ireland) to Pembroke (West Wales)
Journey time: 4 hours
Journey highlights:

Travel from the sandy strands of southeastern Ireland to the rugged coastline and pretty villages of Pembrokeshire on Irish Ferries' speedy, twice daily ferry services, which offers a wide range of amenities, as well as the chance to spot dolphins and wales if you're lucky.

Gateway to the wonderful scenery of Pembrokeshire, Pembroke and Pembroke Dock are two distinct – but connected – towns. You will arrive in the latter, a place with a rich maritime and naval heritage, but these days most of what is of interest to tourists lies in Pembroke itself. With a charming town centre that retains many historic buildings, Pembroke is dominated by its dramatic castle, some of which dates back to the 1093.

The two Pembrokes are also well connected by train and bus to the rest of the county. For many, the main appeal of the region justly lies in the many fine, sandy beaches scattered along its dramatic coastline. With sweeping bays and towering cliffs, this is some of the finest coast in Britain and offers everything from unspoilt stretches of sand to the bustling resort of Tenby: and a hinterland of rolling hills and woodland.
