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.

Holyhead car rental is the key to unlocking a host of holiday treasures...
Cross the causeway, from Holyhead and Holy Island, to explore the rest of Anglesey, visiting attractions such as King Arthur's seat and the Sea Zoo. Alternatively, head to the north east of the island of Anglesey and the small town of Amlwch, which features a railway museum and coastal walks past the old copper mine at Parys Mountain.
You can then continue driving to one of the many local beaches, such as Newry Beach with its marina and bistros selling locally-caught seafood.
Melin Llynnon windmill and Penmon Priory, on the east coast, are also popular visitor attractions that are easily accessed by car.
From the priory it's a five-minute drive to the Menai Straits and you are at the bridge built by Thomas Telford that connects the island to the Welsh mainland. As a rough guide, it takes around 30 minutes to drive from Holyhead, on Holy Island, and across the island of Anglesey to reach the Welsh mainland. Crossing the bridge gives you access to the popular Welsh towns of Llandudno, Bangor and Snowdonia, offering the opportunity for some trekking and shopping.
Visit Bangor to pick up a few words from the native Welsh speakers; in this part of Wales the language is widely spoken amid the pleasant attractions, such as the harbour and the cathedral. The university ensures the small city stays young and vibrant at heart.
You could reach Llandudno from Holyhead in less than an hour. All of the essential elements of a charming British seaside resort can be found here, as well as plenty of good hotels if you fancy staying over.
Or you could take a lungful of fresh mountain air when you journey into Snowdonia National Park, which is crowned by Snowdon, the highest peak in Wales. Active types are never short of activities, though they might be left short of breath in this awe-inspiring destination.
