Morning all,

I am visiting Holyhead for a couple of days (business) and wanted to know if there were any recommended restaurants or bars?

The usual plan of walking around to see what we find is valid but, as it is somewhere we rarely visit, I thought there may be a hidden gem.

Thank you.

I sat there for 8 hours once waiting for my then g/f to get back in on a ferry while that Icelandic volcano was kicking off

Was the most boring 8 hours I've ever had, I had to save up my piss breaks so I didnt run out of things to do

Ferry to Dublin, night on the razz, back to Holyhead in the morning. It's the only way you're surviving that place. It seems to be a ferry port, little more.

Might be worth checking if there's anything on at Anglesey
circuit?

Not sure what's in Holyhead but there's probably more over the other end of the island.

Unfortunately I have to remain in Holyhead otherwise I would be straight on the ferry to Dublin!

Weather does look a little grim for the period but I suppose we should keep dry on the inside of a pub.

Leins,

Fantastic idea!

Would be fun to see how the crappy eco-rubbish 4 pot dag dag gets on round there 5 up plus luggage!

Local pubs. For local people.

This, there are tidal overfalls there. You think it looks rough from up on the cliffside, try racing through it on a boat biggrin, it's rather horrible.

On the Menai straits, south end of angelsey, there are some nice places, check out Beaumaris, some nice beaches on angelsey too... Newborough/red warf/ triadda? (spelling).
Holyhead is desolate though.

Visit Trearrdur Bay (where there is a nice beach, also a couple of nice eateries), then there's a back road to Holyhead via the South Stack lighthouse (where the car park is like an alpine pass layby if it's a grey misty day hehe ). thumbup
