Attraction Information

  • Parks and Playgrounds icon Parks and Playgrounds

Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

Breakwater Country Park is dramatically located in an old quarry and provides an excellent centre for coastal walks.
From here it is possible to walk along the Holyhead Breakwater, the longest in the UK with a length of just under 2 miles and a popular circular path around scenic 'Rocky Coast'. Other trails lead to the summit of Holyhead Mountain and along the coast to breathtaking North Stack so you're almost spoilt for choice if you're mobile enough.
During the summer months the Holyhead Model Boat Club sail on the pond in the park on Wednesday and Sunday afternoons, making a visit especially popular with children.
Also, during the summer, the Holyhead Breakwater Railway Company run a Land Train service from Newry Beach in Holyhead, to both the Breakwater Country Park, and to the end of the Breakwater.
Holyhead's Maritime Museum is situated on Newry Beach in what is believed to be the oldest (1800s!) lifeboat house in Wales. The Museum displays address the history and development of the port of Holyhead and is solely educational.
The museum incorporates a public bar and bistro with a balcony overlooking the beach, which is handy for after all that walking!
