Lower Town Fishguard

Lower Town, Fishguard

Fishguard Town crowns the summit of a hill commanding beautiful marine views of both harbours and distant views north easterly past Dinas Head to Cemaes Head at the Northern extremity of Pembrokeshire which marks the entrance into the Teifi Estuary, leading to the town of Cardigan.

The building of Fishguard Harbour began in 1894 and was completed 1906 for the Irish ferry trade and in 1907 began the transatlantic trade to New York via the luxury liner RMS Mauretania.
