The Port of Holyhead provides an essential sea link between mainland Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland. It is located on Holy Island, which is connected to the Isle of Anglesey by the Four Mile Bridge.

The port offers modest facilities, which cover most of the essentials and include a bureau de change and ATMs as well as disabled persons' toilets, baby-changing facilities and a counter selling snacks and hot and cold beverages.
