Visit Aberaeron and the local area

We’re proud of Aberaeron and its surrounding area and love living here. A small planned Georgian town of around 1500 inhabitants, with the tidal harbour as its focal point and interesting independent shops.

Come and stay and you can do as much or as little as you wish.

Summer in Aberaeron is bustling with some great events, such as the local Tug o War across the harbour, the Carnival, Feast street food or Welsh cobs Festival. Check for dates.

Off season is a great time to come and blow away the cobwebs and for a break away from it all.

Watching the sun set on Cardigan Bay is one of our top tips as you enjoy a drink on the harbour wall, as is walking the Coastal Path to New Quay and Llangrannog, strolling to Llanerchaeron National Trust or further afield on some great cycling routes that can be downloaded from Glyn’s blog.

Aberaeron looks like a magical town from a mid-20th-century Ladybird children’s book, grand houses painted in bright rainbow colours lining the quay. The Harbourmaster is the prettiest of them, bold and commanding in blue, with silver bathtubs and Welsh blankets livening up its beautiful rooms.

Seafood for supper is an Aberaeron institution: visitors mixing with locals to eat Cardigan crab, crispy cockles and oysters from the Irish Sea.

Breakfasts is also delicious – the Harbourmaster beans with chorizo, eggs and handmade sourdough is a dream. You’ll be brushing up on your Cymraeg too with the bilingual menus.”
