Holyhead, Anglesey

The Welsh town of Holyhead is directly linked to Dublin in Ireland. High-speed ferries offer travel between the two, and make Holyhead a popular destination for Wales holidays and as a stop-over for travel to Dublin. As its name suggests, Holyhead stands on the Holy Island, accessed by a causeway affectionately known as The Cob.

Holyhead's top visitor attraction is the South Stack RSPB Reserve, home to puffins and peregrines amongst a variety of other native birds. The South Stack Lighthouse offers excellent photo opportunities, as does the modern Celtic Gateway Bridge constructed in 2006 to efficiently link the town centre with the ferry terminal and railway station.

Each year, Holyhead events include the Holyhead Traditional Sailing Festival and the Anglesey Agricultural Show. The town also hosts the Holyhead Festival taking place each July, with family fun in the form of market stalls, a fun fair, land train rides and live history re-enactments. Vintage vehicles are on display at the festival, and there are live music performances in the evening. Whether you're just passing through or looking to book accommodation for a longer stay, you'll find Holyhead places to stay on our site today.
