Scenic Walking Tour of Fishguard 

Little time but keen to explore? Enjoy the impressive history and panoramas of Fishguard in just 1 1/2 hours!


Scenic Walking Tour of Fishguard – 1.5 hrs

Starting in the centre of Fishguard, you will see the Royal Oak where the French invasion surrender in 1797 was negotiated and hear about the commemorative 30m tapestry that tells the story.

Passing through “Golden Mile” you will be taken to the Gorsedd Circle to mark the 1936 Eistedfodd  before looking down over Lower Fishguard and over to the fort that played a part in repelling the invasion. To the east, the Preseli Hills hide many ancient sites. One is the quarry from which the bluestones for Stonehenge were cut.

Down the Slade you will hear how shipbuilding gave the names to local streets. In Lower Fishguard you will see fine sculptures by local artist John Cleal and hear about the first flight to Ireland that took off from above the main port, reaching Wexford after just 100 minutes in 1912.

These and many other stories will give you a great experience and realisation that this small town has an important past.  Return to the town centre can be either on foot or by the hourly T5 bus service.
