To get to Haverfordwest you need to take the A48 then the A40 from the M4 near Swansea. Should you be coming from the North you can take the A487 from Cardigan, and you'll find Fishguard at the junction between that road and the A40. The Ferry port is a mile north west of the town centre of Fishguard and there are clear signs to it.
The ferry terminal at Fishguard is operated by the Stena Line, who offer a large array of services, which includes a buffet bar which serves snacks and drinks. There is also a Cuppacabana bar and a few drinks vending machines. There are baby changing rooms and disabled toilets. Each Stena Line ferry has shops, entertainment and restaurants. You can also get both short and long stay car parking at the port.
The town of Fishguard is located on a lofty headland on the Wales coast, overlooking the ferry port which offers regular crossing via car and passenger ferries to Rosslare in Ireland. The port is actually in Fishguard's sister town of Coodwick
nearby. Lower Fishguard is extremely picturesque with its cluster of quayside cottages and lovely views of the headland and the port.
The main claim to fame of Fishguard is that it was the site in 1797 of the last invasion of Britain, which was carried out by a landing at Carreg Wasted a few miles south by a group of French troops. These soldiers have been kindly labelled as ill-disciplined. Apparently, they thought that the stovepipe hats and red flannel dresses of the large group of local women were actually military uniforms which motivated them to try to negotiate a ceasefire at the Royal Oak Inn in the town centre, which moved onto an unconditional ceasefire when they saw the women! Legend has it that Jemima Nicholas - nicknamed the "Welsh Heroine", single-handedly captured 14 French Soldiers.
To find out more, you can see mementoes of the last invasion in the pub and also the visitor centre in the town. There you can see the Last Invasion Tapestry, which is 30 metres long and was made by local craftsmen to depict the events of 1797.
