About Douglas

The kingdom of Man is a mystical island located at the geographical centre of the British Isles in the middle of the Irish Sea. The island is well connected to both Britain and Ireland, with daily departures from Douglas Ferry Port to Liverpool, Liverpool Birkenhead, Heysham, Dublin and Belfast. All Douglas ferries can be booked through AFerry

The island of Man measures just 33 miles by 13 but within these shores there is a wealth of discoveries to be made. It is a very different island, with its own legal system and the world's oldest continuous parliament - Tynwald.

The main port of Douglas has experienced changes with the construction of a second link span. This elevated passenger walkway was built on reclaimed land during the nineties to provide up-to-date facilities for the new design of conventional and fast roll on - roll off ferries now operating to the island.

    Passenger needing assistance
    • I appreciate the assistance boarding but boarding last is difficult. Most of the seats are taken by then. Especially near ones. Trying to walk looking for seats proves a great strain.

    Good Service
    • Do not bother with the upgrade in service (and price). The basic level of seats and service is plenty fine indeed.
