We will be staying in Bath for a couple days, then making our way towards Dublin. I'm wondering if it would make sense to stop for a night or two in Wales, and if so, which route might be the most efficient. We will be traveling by train.
It seems my port options are Fishguard or Holyhead, with Fishguard being closer to Bath, but Holyhead going to Dun Laoghaire which seems to be a good candidate for our stay in Dublin.
I've heard Wales is known for their Mead, which interests us as I am a brewer and we have a strong interest in just visiting local pubs. Snowdonia also sounds interesting. Any ideas/help for the logistics of this part of your trip?
