Isle of Man Steam Packet Company fast craft Manannan resumes service


This month marks the return of Isle of Man Steam Packet Company’s fast craft Manannan. Daily sailings to Liverpool resume on 23rd March, while sailings to Belfast will begin on 28th March and 29th March for Dublin.

Passengers can sail into the heart of Liverpool every day, with foot passenger fares starting from just £19 for adults and £10 for children aged 4 to 15, with infants under 4 travelling for free.

There are more than 900,000 offer seats available during 2018, and with the return of the popular 5 Day Short Break offer a car and two people can travel from just £90 each way.

Liverpool is a great destination for a city break with friends or family, offering fantastic shopping, nightlife, entertainment, sport and culture to enjoy.

Spend a weekend enjoying the sights, sounds and smells of the historic city. Experience a football match at Goodison Park or Anfield, enjoy an afternoon of retail therapy in Liverpool ONE, or see favourite artists perform at the Echo Arena.

Liverpool is also a great port for anyone wanting to travel further afield, with the motorway network just minutes from the dock. Alternatively, travel as a foot passenger and make use of the excellent rail, coach and bus links from the city.

The return of Manannan also means the resumption of regular sailings to Belfast and Dublin.  As you explore the Emerald Isle be sure to take in the hustle and bustle of the busy cities found in between miles of beautiful coasts and countryside. Make even more of your time away by sailing into one port and sailing home from the other, discovering everything in between.

Steam Packet Company Chief Executive Mark Woodward said: ‘The return of our fast craft Manannan is always an exciting and busy time for us, and we are looking forward to welcoming our passengers on board. It is always great to see a combination of Island residents heading off on their travels, along with curious visitors on their way to discover our special island!’
