The Irish village of Rosslare, or Rosslare Strand to give it is full name, is a coastal resort and port located in County Wexford, Ireland. Separating Wexford Harbour from the North Sea is a long sandspit which stretches north from Rosslare which until the 1920's stretched for many more miles north. At one point the spit almost reached Raven Point, giving Wexford Harbour and very narrow mouth. However, a storm breached the spit during the winter of 1924-25 and was thereafter gradually washed away. Located at the end of the spit was Rosslare Fort which is now abandoned. All that remains is a small island visible at low tide.
The village is supposed to be the sunniest in Ireland and has been a popular tourist resort for at least the last 100 years. The town's beach has been awarded a Blue Flag and therefore attracts many bathers and families.
The town's modern port has good passenger facilities and provides ferry services to Pembroke, with a crossing time of around 4 hours, Fishguard, 3 hours and 30 minutes and Cherbourg and Roscoff in France. Passenger facilities include a restaurant, a bar, children's play area and a waiting area.
The town of Pembroke is located in the county of Pembrokeshire in the west of Wales and lies on the South Pembrokeshire Peninsular by the estuary of the River Cleddau. Pembroke is located around 13 km to the south of the town of Haverfordwest and 120 km from Cardiff and sits at the bottom of a valley that is surrounded on all sides by farmland and woodland. Pembroke Castle is a popular and interesting attraction in the town and was the birthplace of King Henry VII of England and later became the home to the Knights of St John in the United Kingdom.
The county of Pembrokeshire borders Camarthenshire to the east and Ceredigion to the north east and is home to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park which is the only coastal national park of its kind in the United Kingdom, and is one of three national parks in Wales. The other two are the Snowdonia National Park and the Brecon Beacons National Park. The beaches around Pembrokeshire's coastline have been awarded many International Blue Flag Awards, Green Coast Awards and Seaside Awards. Also, in 2013 it has 39 beaches that were recommended by the Marine Conservation Society.
From the town's port, ferry services operate to Rosslare in Ireland, with a journey time of around 3 hours and 45 minutes.
