Hello everybody!

Old Lady usually has the best answers to my transit issues, however anyone with an answer i’d greatly be appreciative.

Im taking a Dublin ferry to Holyhead, Wales. I have the train schedule to get to Cardiff. however I would like to stop in Caernarfon, to see the castle however I cant find any bus routes from the ferry port to Caernarfon, and think that the mileage is nearly 30 miles which is too far for a cab.

Does anyone have suggestions? Ive tried National Express Buses, with no luck and renting a car is not an option.

Thanks again!

1. Wow, looked at some pictures and it sure seems worth a visit.
2. Amazing that none of the websites feature any “how to get here” information.
3. Maybe this will help: http://www.traveline… Looks like you can bus/rail/walk it in about an hour.

I dont even know what to say! You are like a god! I knew you of all people would know of a way. Yes I have wanted to see it for a while but i knew going to cardiff I’d never want to back track to go see it. As stupid as it seems I only 2 years later thought of seeing if i can stop there on the way to Cardiff. And it seems now you just gave me the only option on the web that could connect me to it!

I can not thank you enough!
