Port Places App Walk in Fishguard

March 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us for a celebration of the ‘Port Places’ app in Fishguard! Through walking tours, multimedia collections and stories, Port Places provides a range of themed experiences covering the seaports of Fishguard, Pembroke Dock, Holyhead, Dublin and Rosslare Harbour, their local attractions, and the crossings between them. The app allows the user to download their choice of curated experiences, each providing a vision of port life, crossings, creativity, history and heritage.

For Fishguard, the initial app experiences include ‘Coastal Fishguard and Goodwick’, ‘The Last Invasion – Fishguard and Goodwick’ and the ‘Rosslare Harbour to Fishguard’ crossing. On March 25, renowned local historian, Edward Perkins, will lead us on a walk around Fishguard, taking in some of the sites of interest featured on the app, and much more, so do come along!

Please contact Claire Nolan to book your place: clairenolan@ucc.ie

It is advised to book early as places are limited! The trail is suitable for all abilities and is wheelchair accessible.


‘Ports Past and Present’ is funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Ireland-Wales Programme.
