This ‘Jewel of the Irish Sea’ is proudly unique. Just a short hop from mainland UK, but with its own distinct and vibrant culture.
The Island is the first nation to become a UNESCO Biosphere, with rich flora and fauna covering the whole island offering undeniable tranquillity and beauty. At the Island’s southern tip is the Sound, one of the most scenic places in the British Isles. It is the ideal location for dolphin and seal spotting or kayaking for those who are up for an adventure! At night the skies are lit up with stars due to the Island’s minimal light pollution. There are plenty of spots to gaze up at the stars and take in the stunning views of the night skies, particularly the Orion Nebula, over 1500 light years away!
The island is not only a wildlife haven, but also rich with history. Peel Castle, an 11th Century castle originally home to Viking warrior and kings, offers stunning panoramic views of the clear blue waters of the Irish Sea. Look out for Moddey Dho while you’re there, a ghostly black dog who is said to haunt the remains of the castle…
