Ice cream shops are a pretty rare commodity. Davisons on the promenade in Douglas is a special treat. It is hard to describe how much better their ice cream tastes by comparison to everything else called ice cream. I suspect that pure ingredients and old fashioned processes just make the result so much better. There are a lot of hidden gems in the Isle of Man. This is one of the better ones. Don't miss it.

Ideally situated on the seafront with great views. The coffee is absolutely 'spot on' and the ice cream is, without doubt, the best you will get on the Isle of Man. Good service (both inside and under the covered outside). Strongly recommended.

Without doubt, the best ice cream in the World! My wife thought she had died and gone to heaven, although I had warned her how good it was.

We tasted this ice cream in various shops around the island, and also sat in the ice cream parlour in Peel. It is nice ice cream - lots of different flavours to choose from - but wouldn't say it was out standing. The sundaes in the parlour were massive with lots of cream, sauce and flake - the kids struggled to finish them! The food in the parlour was fine, just what we were looking for - toasties and paninis. Coffee was very strong - needed lots of sugar to be pleasant, but hot chocolate was lovely. Staff really seemed to struggle with our Scottish accents!!
