The trip to Douglas and back went smoothly. I was very impressed with the comfort of the seating and the different seating arrangements, the lounge for a brew and even small theatres. The only negative is the fact there are so few sailings which means those of us staying in BnBs that we must vacate at 10am or so are left with our luggage until the evening sailing. In my case that would have been nearly a day of sightseeing lost. Amazingly a local stepped in and stored my luggage in their parked car until the ferry was leaving. I am so grateful to that lady!! Look forward to seeing some luggage storage on my next trip. Overall fantastic service!!Read More Read Less

The town of Douglas is the main town on the Isle of Man, and is the main starting point for all visitors to the island, and is indeed the perfect place to start, thanks to its picturesque harbour, and Victorian style buildings. Filled with cobbled streets, plenty of shops and restaurants, and with access to all the nearby beaches, Douglas is the perfect representation of the Isle of Man. All ferries that run to the Isle of Man run through Douglas, from destinations such as England, Northern Ireland, and Ireland, and there is easy access to the rest of the island, including a horse drawn tram running along the coastline.
The city of Liverpool is one of the oldest cities in England, and is known for its ports, which have been a centre of commerce, trade, and shipbuilding, for many centuries now, and is the ideal stopping place for ferries across the Irish Sea. Home to the classic redbrick buildings that have made it famous across the years, as well as countless museums and parks, Liverpool has never been easier to visit. Ferries run from here to Northern Ireland, Ireland, and the Isle of Man, with a large ferry terminal full of all the amenities that you may need, and there is also plenty of good transport links from here to the rest of the UK, making this the ideal transfer spot.
