There are two pubs, Ye Olde Vigour Inn, and The Harbour Hotel, all of which serve excellent food. The town of Holyhead is only a 20-minute drive away and offers all the usual amenities as well as the opportunity to hop on a ferry to Dublin for the day!!!

Originally a fishing village, it became a centre for shipbuilding and exporting marble and limestone, used to build many of Liverpool’s buildings.

Maritime activity is at the old stone pier where boat trips to Skerries Lighthouse and the Isle of Man can be arranged with local boat owners.
