A beautiful home with lovely furnishings, all first rate. The property is located in a very quiet residential neighborhood just five minutes walk from good restaurants, the beach, shops, and the bus and steam train stations.
Port Erin is a gem. There are spectacular hiking opportunities in several directions: A Neolithic stone circle, Cregneash national folk museum village, the sound between the Calf of Man, The Chasms, Milner Tower, Bradda Head, the coastal path… The hosts are avid hikers and possess a wealth of information. The hosts had thoroughly researched some local features that we had casually mentioned before we arrived.
We did not rent a car and did not suffer. The host will transport you from/to the ferry terminal or airport. He also has information on lower cost car rental options than what you will find on the internet.
The only problem we had on our trip was no fault of the B & B. When we departed the airport was closed due to “bad weather”; it is not instrumented for landings other than Visual Flight Rules. When we finally took off for Dublin, the last flights to the USA had left Dublin. The “bad weather” would not have interrupted operations at any other commercial airport I am familiar with. Use the ferry only.
