About Liverpool

Liverpool Ferry Port is one of UK's major passenger and freight ports and covers both banks of the River Mersey. It offers ferries to the Isle of Man, Northern Ireland and Ireland, all of which can be booked through AFerry.

Liverpool, with its famous waterfront on the River Mersey, is besides a great shipping port also an industrial center. King John launched it on its road to glory when he granted it a charter in 1207. Before that, it had been a tiny 12th-century fishing village, but it quickly became a port for shipping men and materials to Ireland.

The City of Liverpool has been undergoing a massive redevelopment as in 2008 Liverpool is European Capital of Culture.

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.

    • There are some things that are not applicable to me. I sat in the cinema room with my daughter. The volume for the movie was far too low, so difficult to hear. Yet announcements were deafening!!

    Smooth Crossings
    • I was lucky enough to have smooth crossings in both directions. The lounges were generally on the cool side and the seats are not very comfortable. Towards the end of my homeward journey I discovered the cinema - warm with comfy seats - next time I will be there throughout!

    Thanks for the ride.
    • It was a fun trip for us but I thought the special seats were a rip off.

    pleasant crossings
    • Not knowing that the Niarbyl (?)lounge was only accessible by a steep stair and without any facilities at that level, I mistakenly booked it. Once there, as a blue badge holder, I had to stay there throughout the voyage without refreshment or access to a toilet. On the return voyage I opted to remain in the main passenger lounge and was able to enjoy all the facilities on board. I wasted the money on the other lounge.
