600 metres from Port Erin Railway Museum, Athol Park Guest House is located in Port Erin and provides free WiFi and express check-in and check-out. Pristine. Comfortable beds. Light rooms. Plenty of storage space. Good bathroom. Great breakfast. Great location. And to top it off, Jen and Allen are fabulous hosts. If you are lucky enough to book a room after August they will also have a Chinese restaurant Which I expect will be of highest quality as well.

Port Erin is a lovely quiet resort, well known to me personally as I have visited it several times over the years. Views over the bay are stunning and the little steam railway is great. Meals at the Falcon's Nest are good value and tasty. We enjoyed the evening meal in the Falcons Nest on our first evening and also the local chip shop for lunch. Creigneash village is lovely to visit together with the Calf - all in all it is a beautiful area. Erin Arts Centre is always a good place to visit, just to see all the photographs of the well known artistes who have performed there is proof of its popularity. There are some lovely walks for the more energetic - which I used to be, but no longer!
Very typical seaside town a little tired but very quaint and relaxing. With the steam train running from Port Erin you can get to Douglas without a car. Not many restaurants, a few take away and coffee shops. The Station pub is really nice.
Port Erin is a lovely, quiet place. Money is being spent on this small beach town; i have seen the improvements over the last few years. It's a great for riders who want to see the TT. It is not on the course but can be easily reached from Port Erin. There are a few pubs and a fish and chip shop where you can eat good quality food. There is also a well stocked small co-op where you can buy everything you need for self catering. The steam train, ticket office and waiting room is wonderful! I highly recommend a trip on the train to Douglas.....it's like going back in time. Finally, the locals are a friendly bunch and make you feel welcome.
Lovely views, great sunsets, good clean beach, plenty of walking opportunities, good choice of eateries. We were lucky enough to be there for the Island At War weekend, when extra attractions were present. Steam Railway is a good way to relax and enjoy the scenery. We enjoyed eating out at Bradda Glen Cafe and The Falcons Nest restaurant. Service and food were good at both, and so was the price.
I think Port Erin offers something for all age groups - plenty of pubs for a night out,, the beach spread out around the bay offers fun for the children. There's also paddle boards for the more adventurous! I planned to try a spot of fishing from the breakwater - or what's left of the breakwater after the storms of 1884/85 destroyed it! - but as I drew a blank on day 1, I fished again on day 2! - same result! So...day 3 was me against the pollack & mackerel of Port Erin! - they won again! With just one day left, what should I do? Admit defeat, go visit another area of the island or head back to the breakwater?? Yes, the fish won - TWICE! 1). They drew me back to my now regular haunt and 2). They again avoided capture! lol But I thoroughly enjoyed the sea air, the sun, but above all the relaxed feel to Port Erin - I WILL visit again! There's a nice fish & chip shop in the high street, plus Indian and Asian takeaways or there are some excellent restaurants - the Bay hotel certainly one of them! (Located along shore road - you can't miss it!)
Port Erin is a lovely town which is obviously on the up, there are a few good places to eat and drink and when the weather is good, the seafront is a great place to be. We visited The Bay restaurant for a dinner- fabulous! Foraging Vintners for a beer and some nibbles - lovely - may have been less enjoyable if we had been unable to sit outside. The Station Cafe - lovely for a light lunch and an Indian Restaurant (BYOB) that I can't remember the name of, but which was superb. It's at the bowling green!
