Known primarily as a bustling ferry port that connects Wales and the Republic of Ireland, Holyhead is also an attractive coastal town. Book Holyhead car hire and get the most out of your holiday.

When you book car hire, Holyhead is merely the start of your adventures...

From a tour of the Roman-built Holyhead Church to a visit to the marina for water sports and sailing, Holyhead has something for everyone.

Overflowing with maritime history and prehistoric sites, arranging car hire to pick up in downtown Holyhead - which is on Holy Island, next to the island of Anglesey in North Wales - is a great way to ensure you see as many of the local attractions as possible.

Holyhead car hire representatives can offer advice on the best sightseeing routes and visitors can cross to Holyhead by way of the four-mile bridge on the Welsh mainland and spend the day driving around the island and exploring its many attractions.

The South Stack lighthouse, designed by Daniel Alexander, is open seasonally for tours. Said to be haunted, the lighthouse is accessed by a footbridge and no less than 400 stone steps.

Alternatively, as Holyhead is best known for its busy port with regular ferries to Ireland, you may wish to board one of the car ferries to Dublin for a day or two and take advantage of the nightlife, shopping and cultural attractions, such as the National Gallery of Ireland. Hire cars can be picked up at the port of Holyhead.
