Traveling to the Isle of man this summer

I am going to be spending a few weeks in Ireland this summer and while I was in Scotland last summer i saw the last bit of a travel show about the Isle Of Man, It all seemed very interesting but i have forgotten most.

So, whats it all about, what is there to see? Worth a trip over there?

any thoughts you have about the place are great thanks.

Thanks in advance

Hi Mattyj

take a look at this Travel Show clip on the Isle of Man that should give you the highlights.

In the summer its a great place for walking, seeing neolithic sites, castles, great museums, quaint trains and trams, and good local ales.
