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.

    • The journey itself was fine once we got away, The ship coming back to the island from Belfast was very late in leaving and there was no reason given.far to late for those little kiddies.

    Easy Trip
    • Our journey began in Douglas, where we arrived at the port early. Checking-in was simple, & once on board we went up to our booked lounge seats. The climb up all those stairs was a bit taxing! The crossing was without incident as the sea stayed almost flat calm. We had some food aboard, which was OK, without being remarkable. On arrival in Belfast, offloading was swiftly done.

    • THe trip was quick and pretty smooth. I liked most things about it- did not like constant rock music in the lounge, and would have liked some kind of recliner for the early morning trip back to Belfast, or more of the padded benches, for the teens who would have napped.
