Holyhead

Holyhead Port is the second busiest Roll on Roll off port in the United Kingdomn and is strategically located on the Ten -T  road network - Euroroute E22  linking the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Latvia and Russia, from the Port of Dublin and inland Ireland.

Ferries sail to Dublin City in Ireland which is 58 miles West of Holyhead Port and this forms the principal link for surface transport from central and Northern England and Wales to Ireland.

The Port area is approximately 3, 500 or 14 sq kms. The Port benefits from being centrally located in the Irish Sea with a number of berths approximately 1 Mile from the open sea. The Port is not tidally restricted and is open 24 hrs a day for deep-sea and coastal vessels. 
The Port of Holyhead is well positioned to cater for direct shipment from worldwide locations and specifically from North West Europe transshipments and the Atlantic Arc . The Port has experience in handling a wide variety of imports, including Ro/Ro , general cargo, gas oil, metals, petroleum coke, aggregates.

The port of Holyhead located on Anglesey North Wales is well protected from prevailing south westerly winds by its position to the due east of Holyhead Mountain, and by its 2.4 kilometre historic breakwater which shelters the port and its berths.
