How to get here


From the Holyhead town centre:
Make your way towards Newry Beach, along Beach Road, which overlooks the breakwater in Holyhead harbour, by following signs for South Stack or Breakwater Country Park. Holyhead Maritime Museum is located along Newry Beach, and there is parking available all the way along this promenade. From here, continue along Beach Road in the direction of Holyhead Mountain, which is an obvious rocky promontory, and after negotiating a roundabout by going straight ahead, there will be a sign-posted turning to the left for the Breakwater Country Park. Stay on this road for about 1 mile and the Breakwater Country Park is located at the foot of Holyhead Mountain. You have an opportunity to walk to the summit of Holyhead Mountain from here, which is quite steep in places, and would take about 45 minutes from the car park. Spectacular views across Anglesey and the Irish Sea are your reward, together with the remains of a Roman fort.
