24 hours in the West of the Isle of Man

24 hours in the West of the Isle of Man

Located on the West coast lies Peel, a thriving fishing port and home to a number of heritage sites, perfectly depicting the history of the Isle of Man. A short trip away lays the secluded bay of Niarbyl, one of the Islands most important geological sites, offering stunning scenery and beautiful sunsets.

An extensive bus route covers the Isle of Man, with services leaving Ronaldsway Airport and the Sea Terminal on a regular basis – making a trip to the West Coast easily manageable within 24 hours.

Tynwald Hill

Make Tynwald Hill your first port of call before continuing on to Peel. Visit the distinctive landmark, with its four-tiered hill a signal of the Isle of Man’s independence as a self-governing crown dependency.

Peel Castle

Located on St Patrick’s Isle, the magnificent ruins of Peel Castle dominates the landscape and is a must see attraction for all visitors to the Island. Wander the extensive grounds, whilst enjoying panoramic views out to sea and over Peel bay, whilst listening to the informative audio guide helping you unlock the Story of Mann.

House of Manannan

Be guided by the legendary sea god Manannan as he takes you through the history of the Island’s rich Celtic, Viking and maritime past. Journey through life-size reconstructions and film shows with atmospheric sounds and smells, see the replica Viking ship Odin’s Raven and discover a time when the Island was the centre of a powerful sea kingdom. 

Leece Musuem

Make the Leece Museum your next stop and discover the unique archive of documents and photographs and the permanent display of TT and MGP winning racing machines, vintage and off road bikes.

Niarbyl Bay

Finish off your day by visiting the secluded beauty spot, Niarbyl, just south of Dalby Village. Discover the peaceful bay with its rolling hills, thatched cottages and dramatic coastal paths leading to White Beach. Time in your visit with the sun setting and enjoy the twinkling stars in the night’s sky.

Taste Eateries

Peel and the West of the Island have embraced the idea of making the very best of locally sourced produce. Visit one of the many fantastic cafés along this magical stretch of coast or watch the sun set on Peel beach before heading to one of the town’s superb restaurants. Don’t forget to look for the Taste logo for a quality assured meal. Why not visit the Highwayman pub, renowned for its delicious home-cooked food in a relaxed friendly environment, or The Boatyard situated on Peel’s historic quayside, where you can enjoy seafood straight off the boat and local meat from the Islands finest butchers.
