Ferry ports serving the Isle of Man

Ferry ports serving the Isle of Man

Ferry services are operated between Douglas on the Isle of Man, and six ports across the UK and Ireland: Liverpool, Heysham, Belfast and Dublin, with a limited service operating to and from Birkenhead and Larne.

The Isle of Man Steam Packet ferry terminal sits in the heart of Douglas at the end of the Promenade. All inbound and outbound ferries use this terminal, both for passengers and for transportation of freight.

Both of the Steam Packet Company’s vessels – the Ben-my-Chree and the fast-craft Manannan – have their own berths here. Ferries operate daily, with the exception of Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

The terminal building offers a number of facilities for passengers including a coffee shop, newsagent, children’s play area and public toilets, as well as a large seating and waiting area. There is an ATM in the wall outside the terminal building.

A taxi rank is located at the front of the terminal, with the Island’s Bus Station (Lord Street) a three minute walk away.

By train

The Isle of Man’s Heritage Railways operate during the summer season (March to October). The Steam Railway links Douglas to the South of the Island – Douglas Station is a ten minute walk from the Sea Terminal – and the Manx Electric Railway links Douglas with the North. However, the MER station lies at the opposite end of the Promenade to the Sea Terminal (two miles away) and a bus or taxi is required between the two.
