What a lovely shop. It is wall to wall fairies plus other gifts and keep sakes.Sometimes you might only want a small gift or cant take home anything too big, well this is the place. Little girls would love to spend time in here and go home with their own personal fairy gift, also the lady who runs the shop... More

The Fairy Shop was always my favourite place to shop, and with a visit to Fairy Bridge as soon as you get on the Island, then a night time wander around Fairy Glen to see the lights (28 and it's still magical), you really do feel like a happy carefree child in this place. The personalised gifts are beautiful and... More

I've just returned from a wonderful week in the IOM and I was saddened to discover the Fairy shop is closing down in September due to the lease expiring. But this wonderful treasure trove is going to be online and you will be able to find it on Facebook and Ebay. The owner told us that it nothing will be... More

I'd have to strongly disagree with skkeck's poor review of the Fairy Shop. I recently visited the Isle of Man with my two little girls and the trip to the fairy shop is something I believe they'll hold dear to them for years to come. Handwritten poems and gift wrapped with care (fairy dust included) -- the special gifts that... More

The shop was lame. Went way out of our way to go to the Fairy Shop based on TA reviews. This is the first time TA has really let me down. I'd hoped to find a unique shop with products that would be special and make for a meaningful momento from the IOM. Our local Hallmark store has the same... More

I visited the Isle of Man in July 2010 for the first time since the 50's and I remembered the Fairy Shop. What a wonderful place it is and Lynn makes everyone feel welcome. I must have spent about an hour and a half in the shop, buying gifts for my grandchildren. A visit is a definite must for people... More

Wandering aimlessly through what passes for a shopping centre in Douglas, I came across the Fairy Shop. The day before, I'd been driven across the Fairy Bridge and warned to salute the fairies (or face the consequences), so I couldn't resist popping into the shop. Even if you don't care for fairies yourself, you'll probably know a little girl who... More

We visited the Fairy Shop and were so enthralled by the lovely things on sale and the service was excellent. The lady that runs the shop was so lovely, polite, friendly and wrapped the presents so beautifully. If you go to the Isle of Man and miss this shop you should be ashamed!!!!

I stumbled across this magical shop and how grateful i am that i did. You walk into a wonderful fairytale and are greeted by the assistant with a smile that lights up your day. The shop itself is full of everything for the fairy enthusiast . My purchases were delightfully gift wrapped with a sprinkle of fairy dust in each... More
