Fishguard Port Authority

The Port of Fishguard provides berthing and handing for ferry traffic to Ireland. Ferry traffic is the Ports primary commercial interest based on vessel numbers, however this is supported commercial and cruise vessels, military support vessels and fishing craft, along with occasional bunkering barge deliveries.  The Port also provides a berth for the RNLI inshore and all weather Trent class lifeboat.  The harbour has the capacity to accommodate additional vessels at anchor although this is not a common practice; anchoring within the approaches to the ferry terminal is prohibited and holding grounds in some areas of the harbour are poor.  The statutory harbour area covers the northern Breakwater extending from Pen Cw and the Easterly Breakwater at Goodwick sands.

Future Development Plans

Plans in are in place for Spring 2019 to remove the existing linkspan which is approaching the end of its life and replace it with a  modern linkspan. The upgrading of the  facilities is to replace the linkspan with a two lane linkspan design to comply with modern standards. The extent of the civil works and the new linkspan shall allow for a larger range of vessels to use the Port, and provide space for any expansion if this is required in the future.
