Getting To Know Holyhead – Cruise Port Guide

Let our holyhead cruise port guide help you plan your cruise ship visit.

The port itself isn’t quite the main attraction, but it is the busiest UK Irish ferry port and home to the largest seagoing ferry in the world. Holyhead is located on Holy Island, which is separated from Anglesey by the Cymryan Strait and was originally connected to Anglesey via the Four Mile Bridge and now by the Stanley Embankment.
