Douglas is the Isle of Man’s capital and only ferry port. It acts as the access point to the Island’s endless scenic cycle paths and walking routes as well as the famous, adrenalin-filled TT and Festival of Motorcycling events held on the world famous Mountain Course.

Belfast

Sail with the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company to the vibrant city of Belfast and discover a destination that offers the perfect combination of town and country, with a myriad of things to do. From the bustling city centre bursting with rich history and heritage to country parks that boast spectacular panoramic views over Belfast and fantastic shopping opportunities, this city has so much to offer.

By bringing your car, you can explore beyond the city too. Northern Ireland has plenty to discover; from the Giant’s Causeway and adrenaline-fueled North West 200 to a fantastic choice of historic golf courses. This is a part of the British Isles you do not want to miss!

You could even travel further afield onto Dublin, giving you the opportunity to enjoy both of these must-visit cities, then pack up the car and return via our Dublin port.

Dublin

Sail with us to Dublin Bay Port, which lies just a short distance from the city centre, and immerse yourself in the Irish capital famed for its culture, laid-back nature and friendly characters. You’ll be spoilt for choice with plenty to see, do and experience during your visit.

For history lovers, a trip to see the Book of Kells – a manuscript written in 800 AD – is a must, while art enthusiasts will enjoy the masterpieces on display in the Irish Museum of Modern Art. Of course, no trip to Dublin would be complete without sampling a Guinness, be that in Temple Bar or the iconic Guinness Storehouse. Needless to say, Dublin has more than enough to satisfy every visitor.

Just a stone’s throw away from the city centre lies a magnificent coastline and beautiful mountain range which offer fantastic opportunities for outdoor experiences. You can embark on a variety of activities including sailing, fishing, windsurfing, kayaking, cycling and hiking. Or, if you are looking for a more relaxing activity, take a stroll in the 19.5 acres of the National Botanic Gardens on the south bank of the Tolka River.
