DURING YOUR STAY
Day 1 – We cross the Irish sea to Douglas, the main town and port of the island, which will be our base for the next 5 days.
Day 2 - This morning we visit Castletown. Dating back to 1090, Castletown was originally the capital of the island for hundreds of years, and much of what the island is today started in this historic town. Castle Rushen, one of the best‐preserved Medieval castles in Europe, still dominates the town. After some time to explore, we travel to Port St. Mary, situated on the south-east of the Island. Here, we will find a pretty, sandy, sheltered beach and a small but busy yachting harbour with fishing and sailing boats regularly coming and going. Our final visit is to glorious Port Erin, which offers superb coastal scenery and many fine walks.
Day 3 – Our first visit today is to Laxey, situated on the east coast. Here you can get an insight in to the Island’s mining heritage and view the world’s largest working waterwheel, Lady Isabella, which used to pump water out of the mines. Afterwards, we visit Ramsey, the second largest town on the Island. Set against the magnificent backdrop of the North Barrule Hills, Ramsey boasts an impressive working harbour and one of the most impressive recreational spaces on the Isle of Man.
Day 4 – Explore Douglas in your own time. The beautiful promenade is lined with welcoming bars and restaurants and the high street is filled with a variety of shops giving you plenty to see and do.
Day 5 – After a wonderful stay, we retrace our footsteps back home
