We had booked for the dinner at Snaefell hotel and the journey there was worth every penny! However, the view we had at the summit was the outside of the window as heavy mist , pouring rain and windy. This is summer 2013!
The dinner was very tasty and nice, the setting perfect. The journey back was cold and miserable until we changed in Laxnes to a warmer train. Well worth it.

We broke down 5 miles out of Ramsey but they laid on a bus for the rest of the journey. £24.80 for 2 adult return tickets to Ramsey and you can get on and off as many times as you like. The scenery is epic, a great, relaxing way to see the island. The locals are great to talk to.

An excellent way to get to Ramsey or Laxey from Douglas ... the views are amazing! Loved the ontime schedule, too!

If staying 3 days or more a MUST is the 3 or 5 day ticket as we used this line twice, and the Steam train twice and several buses. Reckon £39 ticket would have been nearly £70 on separate tickets! Get a time table and sit on the seaward side (right going north). Change at Laxey for the Snafell railway.
