    • Transportation from Ireland or Scotland to the Isle of Man in October?

      Isle of Man Mar 30, 2014 at 11:42 PM

      Hi there!
      I'm wondering if anyone know of any transportation that runs from either Ireland or Scotland to the Isle of Man in Oct.
      I am doing 5 weeks in Ireland, with a quick jaunt to Scotland, this year and would like to be on the Isle of Man at the end of that month.

      But in looking at the major ocean ferries, etc., none seem to run that time of year. Any inside info would be great!
      Thanks!

      Although I have been to the island several times I have only ever done short walks on some parts of the coastal path and would really appreciate any tips or advice anyone has on doing it.

    • Best time to visit?

      Isle of Man Oct 3, 2013 at 1:42 PM

      What is the best time of year to visit the Isle of Man? Looking at my diary for 2014, it appears that we will either be able to come on the early May bank holiday weekend (Fri May 2 - Mon May 5) or the late August bank holiday weekend (Fri Aug 22 - Mon Aug 25). Having never been before, I'm wondering which would be the better choice.

      Thanks!

    • Has anyone got a spare ferry ticket for bike and rider for the 2014 TT?

      Isle of Man Sep 9, 2013 at 4:03 AM

      Has anyone got a spare ferry ticket for bike and rider for the 2014 TT? I'd prefer to go out from Liverpool on 30th May and come back on 4th June but I am flexible.

    • Free ferry and camping tickets

      Isle of Man May 22, 2013 at 12:21 PM

      I have a return ticket from Heysham on 25th May to Douglas, returning 12th June (you can return at any time) for 1 passenger plus a motorcycle.I also have camping booked at Braddon Football club from 25th May for 6 nights, then 10 nights at Quarterbridge campsite. I cannot get to the TT this year as I am stuck on an oil rig in the North Sea, so anyone wanting these tickets can have them. I know it's short notice but they might as well get used by somebody. First come, first served.

      Any regular and frequent visitors to Mann out there?

      Isle of Man Dec 30, 2012 at 12:54 PM

      It is over 50 years since my last visit to the Isle of Man. In those days I lived in the north of England and we went by Ferry from Fleetwood.
      Now I live in South Wales - 45 minutes from Cardiff & Bristol airports but I have not found a regular air service from either of those to the IoM.

      One of our grown up children and family have recently gone to live on the Island- they use the Heysham ferry and Manchester airport for to-ing and fro-ing.
      Can anyone recommend the most convenient way to travel from South Wales to the IoM without too much driving before reaching the point of departure?
      At the moment it is looking like a long haul overland for aged Parents - so any advice appreciated.

      Best length of time to enjoy Isle of Man

      Isle of Man Feb 2, 2012 at 3:19 PM

      I am planning a 22 day trip around Ireland and wanted to spend the end of it in Isle of Mann. Depending on how I arrange things, I have between 3 to 7 days to work with. How much time is required to comfortably get a feel for the sights on this island, especially compared with the benefits of lengthening the Ireland part of the trip?

      Thanks

      Hi All,

      I'll be in London in December, then a jaunt to Paris in January, and am wondering if it is worth it to head to Isle of Man on the way to Ireland. Any thoughts? Will it be too cold to really do anything? Are the interesting venues opened or closed?

      A few mixed questions on the Isle and travel options etc...

      Isle of Man Apr 27, 2010 at 2:22 PM

      Hello all
      Planning a weekend in the Isle of Man sometime in the next couple of months. We will be visiting from Dublin, so naturally the ferry from Dublin sounds like a good idea.
      Can anyone tell me if there is a Sunday boat back to Ireland as it doesn't appear so! I'm found a Monday one alright but i don't have the days to spare unfortunately. I'm kind of hoping i won't have to fly back on the Sunday but it may come to that. I kinda felt the whole boat thing was part of the Isle of Man experience :)
      Also, hotels and B&B's on the island. Can anyone recommend the best based on their experience? It's definitely budget accomodation for us anyway, so hotels etc are out of the question!
      What's the social life like on the Isle? Is Douglas where all the action is at night?
      Also, cultural and tourist attractions. Can you recommend the top 5 for me please? I've seen some cool pics of an old coastal castle and some country lanes with nice views... but no doubt the people of this forum are much better informed than i am :)
      Can't wait to hear all the input! :)
      Thanks!

    • June 2010 Accommodations!:)

      Isle of Man May 11, 2009 at 1:59 PM

      Dear Virtual Tourist IOM Forum,

      My husband and I are planning a trip to the IOM from June 1-13, 2010.
      We want to stay someplace comfy, clean & safe, but under 100. pounds a night for a room. The Sefton is 200 pounds a night, and Mount Murray is 127. a night.

      Any recommendations out there for us? The Silvercraig seems okay, and so does the Arrandale Hotel. Any opinions about how these two compare? Also looking at: Claremont Hotel, The Town House, Welbeck Hotel, and would very much like to find out about "Dreem Ard."

      We would appreciate any tips and knowledge you might be able to pass along:)

      Location of Grand Island Hotel in Ramsey?

      Isle of Man Nov 7, 2007 at 2:01 AM

      The Grand Island Hotel in Ramsey seems to be a very nice place and they offer good rates. But I wasn't able to find out much about its location. The website only gives advice how to get there by car. I'll have to rely on public transportation. How easy is it to get to the hotel by bus? Is it far from the town centre or close to any buses?
      I've decided to take the ferry to the Isle of Man and from what I've read about the railway it stops running around 4pm. The ferry comes in after 5pm, so I cannot take the railway. Are there buses going up to the Grand Island Hotel, Bride Road, Ramsey in late afternoon/ early evening in summer?

      Any Motor Races in August 2008?

      Isle of Man Nov 5, 2007 at 7:57 AM

      I'm trying to find the times for the races in summer next year. The main event sems to be in May/June, but I remember something about a second race later in the year. The official Isle of Man website seems to be stuck on October 2007, so until this is fixed I can't get any information there.
      Does anybody know if there is another racing event in August 2008? I'm not interested in racing, and I would prefer to avoid it. Also, from what I've heard accomodation is more expensive then, which is another reason to avoid these dates.
