Review of Ballasalla by Malcolm Byrne on January 9th, 2008
Your correction is required. Your 'Sefton Express Hotel' caption on the associated Ballasalla photograph is incorrect. The photograph you are using is, actually, of the exterior of the Isle of Man (Ronaldsway) Airport terminal building. I know this as (a)I was born and brought up in the Isle of Man and near to this building and, even though I now reside in SW France, I (b) still regularly fly into and out of this airport.

Review of Castletown by stan cotter on July 7th, 2010
i have visited and stayed in castletown so many times since 1959 and it always felt like coming home. we made lots of friends including a few pub landlords and customers of the "glue pot" (castle arms) sadly bella has since passed away but we knew her when with albert they ran the union on arbory street. many friends have since moved on and indeed some have passed but will always remain good memories. the castle is always worth a visit. a train ride will take you up to douglas or down to porterin and if delayed at the station there are two good pubs right by the station. hango hill has its own tale to tell and nearby at ronaldsway is a small museum full of artefacts frm the war years and relics found in the sea off the isleofman. dont take my word, go and see it yourself

Review of Kirk Michael by ruth mitchell on February 19th, 2010
Hi, I used to go for holiday's in the 1950's. My aunt owned a Bungalow, which was a Bed and Breakfast, also she ran a poultry farm, it was on the hill's facing the sea, in Glen Wyllin, the address of her home was named Ocean Vista. It was beautiful, sadly she and her husband passed away and are both buried in St. Michael's Church yard. I would like to visit again one day, it is one of the most beautiful views I have evr seen. Regards, Ruth Mitchell, Manchester.

Review of Port Erin by Giancarlo Savaris on July 4th, 2008
I spent 3 months in Port Erin in 1971 on a working holiday during summer. I was only 17 then. The place has moved on, no doubt, although I still recognise it from the pictures I found on this and other sites. The promenade with its imposing and seemingly out place Victorian buildings is still there; that is is the first thing that struck me arriving in the double-decker bus from the airport (was it near Castletown?). The treeless promontory and its tower too are still as I remember. I wonder if the people have changed. I knew the whole town, or so I thought. The other thing I remember are the huge crabs which could be picked up from the beach at high tide. I have very fond memories of Port Erin and would like to return one day before I am too old.

Review of Ramsey by eddie redhead on October 17th, 2007
Although I have not been in Ramsey since I left the R.A.F. IN jURBY in 1953-54 I remember the town well. Watching the T.T.. races, dancing in the ballroom on Saturday nights after a pint in the square and the cinema. Some of the locals who worked on the base in my department were a Mr Corkhill and a Mr Clegg who used to hair for the chaps. The town ,its people and the great scenery will live with me for ever .
