Harbour Village Walk

Take off for Ireland 1912.

Take a walk, catch the bus, or drive to Harbour Village from the middle of Goodwick and park at the viewpoint at the top. Take in the breathtaking view of the Preseli Mountains and the coastline, including the Harbour, before following the coast path out towards Carregwasted (place of the Last Invasion by a French force in 1797) and Strumble Head. Almost immediately you leave the urban landscape to walk the Wild West coast of Pencaer.

Behind the houses on the west side of Harbour Village is a large neolithic burial site called Garn Wen with several exposed tombs. Take the lane towards Penrhiw Farm to see the take off site for the first flight to Ireland in 1912. You can continue through the farm and on to Llanwnda where the ancient church of St Gwyndaf is open. You can continue through Llanwnda towards Carregwastad point and return along the coast path. Allow two hours if you are going the whole way. The booklet “Discovering Fishguard and Goodwick – four Walks” gives full information on this and other local walks.
