Pembroke ferry port in Wales connects you with Rosslare in Ireland with a choice of up to 16 ferry crossings per week. The duration of the Pembroke to Rosslare crossing is from 3 hours 1 minute and the crossing is operated by Irish Ferries.
The small Welsh town of Pembroke Dock, just a few miles north of its larger neighbour Pembroke, sits on the banks of the forked River Cleddau that flows from the mainland and into St George’s Channel. Once the site of a major Royal Navy dockyard during the 19th Century, the area is now a tranquil spot on the Pembrokeshire peninsula that extends from the south-western foot of the country.
The port of Pembroke (found in Pembroke Dock,) is a small harbour with piers that extend into the Milford Haven section of the river. The passenger terminal here consists of nothing more than a short-stay car park and an open-air departure area with lanes that lead vehicles onto the docked ferries.
Pembroke Dock is well supplied by transport routes that stretch across the mainland. The A477 trunk road starts in the centre of town and traces the southern coastline before feeding into the major M4 motorway that cuts directly into the heart of London nearly 250-miles away. A train station offering services to the major Welsh city of Swansea is also located a short distance from the port too.
Only one passenger service currently operates from the port. An Irish Ferries line sails to Rosslare in the south of Ireland multiple times throughout the week, a journey that takes ferry-goers along the Milford Haven waterway before heading the short distance north across the Irish Sea.
From the east follow the M4 past Swansea which turns into the A48 & then the A40. Pass St Clears & turn left onto the A477, which leads directly to Pembroke & Pembroke Dock. From the west take the A4076 from Haverfordwest & then the A477 to Neyland. Pembroke Dock is across the Toll Bridge. Follow the signs to the Ferry Port.
Pembroke Dock Train Station is situated close to the ferry terminal with regular services by Wales and Border Trains.
