Mostyn once served as a port from which ferries used to sail (until 2004) to Dublin on the Liverpool-Dublin route. Today, manufactured wings for the massive Airbus A380 aircraft leave Mostyn on the ship Ville De Bordeaux, after travelling down the River Dee by barge from the Airbus wing factory at Broughton, Flintshire.
Mostyn Port has been the construction base for some of the Irish Sea Offshore Windfarms --
North Hoyle, (Constructed 2003-2004)
Burbo Bank (2006-2007)
Rhyl Flats, (2008-2009)
Gwynt y Môr windfarm, under construction 2012-
Mostyn's port area is home to the headquarters of Warwick International Group Limited, manufacturers of bleach activators for detergent applications.
Just down the A548 road from Mostyn at Llanerch-y-Mor is the now closed Mostyn Fun Ship. The ship started life as the Duke of Lancaster, a car ferry and cruise ship. After it was permanently dry-docked in Mostyn, it earned its later name from its new operation as an arcade and bar.
Their football team Mostyn Dragons are champions of Clwyd League Division Two and promoted to division one in 2008-09
