Getting here

Enjoy your journey!

Connections to numerous airports and five ferry ports in the UK and Ireland

The Isle of Man is easily accessible as a leisure destination – and closer than you think!

There can be few places that pack so much into such small dimensions as the Isle of Man. Situated between England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, it boasts natural beauty, an intriguing history and outdoor activities for all. Getting here is easy, come by plane or ferry. There are plenty of choices on where to fly from and ferries run in the summer from Dublin, Belfast, Heysham and Liverpool, over the winter, sailing daily from Heysham.

We can help with booking ferries and plans, call Nikki & Nigel for assistance.

    It had been 48 years since my friend and I had visited the Island and Nikki was so helpful in helping us find our original accommodation in Douglas all those years ago, she used Manx Nostalgia and was able to trace the Guest house we stayed at, that just made our return trip complete
