Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic, to the West of Great Britain. The island of Ireland is politically divided between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland which is part of the United Kingdom.
The region has a rather diverse landscape with a ring of coastal mountains and low plains at the centre of the island. With three World Heritage Sites, Ireland’s outstanding natural beauty is of great interest to many tourists.
Ferry travel is a popular method of getting from Ireland to England, Wales and the Isle of Man across the Irish Sea. Crossings are year round, fast and operated by a variety of ferry company across a number of routes.
Despite the relatively long crossing, France is also well connected by ferry from Ireland. The ships are reasonably well appointed and as with the crossings to the UK, there are a number of operators and routes to choose from.
The Isle of Man is a self-governing, British crown dependency, situated halfway between Northern Ireland and the northwest of England.
One of Britain’s five UNESCO World Biosphere Reserves, as of 2016, the Isle of Man is both geographically attractive and culturally intriguing, with its own language, a national dish of herring and potatoes and the oldest continuous parliament in the world. This is all found alongside gorgeous, green valleys and ruggedly picturesque coastlines.
For the majority of the year, life on the Isle of Man is quiet and relaxing. However, from May to June it hosts the world famous TT motorbike races, attracting over fifty thousand revellers each year.
The Isle of Man lies close to the borders of England, Northern Ireland and Ireland, which makes travelling by ferry the easiest and most convenient way to get there, with numerous sailings to Douglas on the southeast coast.
