Just 'passing through' this time - we've stayed there (Ballasalla) with young family years ago with TT 'homestay' - in a small cottage with too few beds! (we were 'making do'). On that occasion we thought it exciting to be handy for the train into Douglas to 'commute' in - though we found it 'too slow' if there were 'other things' we wanted to do in town! Better going the 'other way' for visits to Castletown and Port Erin (end of the line!) Years ago we went to Castle Rushen and didn't think much of it...but thankfully, recently it is much improved and informative - a pleasure to visit (last year). Also last year we were delighted to be recommended (TV TTcoverage!) the TT teas in the local church hall and can confirm they were indeed FAB (though a bit over-subscribed - busy - helpers run off their feet - with many locals as well as TT fans!!!). Enjoyed going on to the cafe (Two-zero?) on the far side of the airport, though it was quiet this time (Sunday morning) but a pleasant ride round with lots of things to see - interesting scenery natural/man made. Look forward to our visit next time! Enjoy!
Ballasalla has a very nice Manx National Historical property of Rushen Abbey in its centre. Unfortunately, the remains of the Abbey are very limited, but the exhibition area and the explanation panels help very much to visualize the past. Also the newly laid-out park is nice for a stroll or quite reading on a bench. Certainly worth a visit. Otherwise in the vicinity is the Silver Glen with a small lake, a nice play area for children and an ice-cream parlour. Also good to spend a sunny afternoon. Additionally, there is the famous Monks Bridge (the oldest in the Island) and the excellent Abbey Restaurant.
Ballasalla is mainly the airport, but is very close to Castletown the medieval capital. There is a restaurant near the shore but nothing else, very close to other interesting places and for exploring
Easy train and bus links for the rest of the island like most of the Isle of Man it is a small community but nearby Castletown very interesting historically .Not much to do unless you like walking and history.Douglas has the only "shopping centre".
Location was ideal for us, visiting friends and close to eateries in Castletown. Leonardos fine restaurant in Castletown.. Shore Hotel Gansey Beach excellent staff and food. Favourite places the whole island. Great walks around the coast and the ice cream in Peel
Ballasalla is conveniently positioned for the south of the Isle of Man - whether heading to The Sound to watch seals, or using the wonderful historic transport links - Victorian steam railway, horse drawn trams at Douglas etc. The island is beautiful with plenty to do. Not really a review of Ballasalla itself, but Ballasalla is a good start point to visit all parts of this island. Isle of Man people are incredibly friendly and helpful. The island is a brilliant place for a long or short break.
Very spacious Very clean Suitable for families or friends
