“Snaefell Dinner trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Had the best time, was a pre ordered menu which was very hot and well presented. Every one enjoyed the meal which was well flavoured. A good choice of meat, fish, and vegetarian. Staff very willing and pleasant. Tram ride is always fab.

“Interesting glimpse into the past”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Quite a jerky ride, disconcerting to have railway and road side by side! Carriages were obviously built for our slimmer, smaller forefathers/mothers.

“Great way to see the Island”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

We traveled on this this weekend. We went from Douglas to Laxey, then changed for the steep climb up Snaefell. At the top is a restaurant and the most amazing views of the Island, Ireland, Scotland and Wales - but only on a clear day! We then came back down and went on to Ramsey. It takes about an hour and 20 mins from Douglas to Ramsey - but just sit back, and enjoy the ride!

“Execllent way to get about”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Cover carriage and open carriage, so make your choice dependant on the weather. Lovely stops where you can get off and on to explore the island.
