We are two schoolfriends from the Isle of Man who wanted a search site that covers all the things you can do on the Island. Things that are going on that you don’t get to hear about or hear about too late! We want to know everything that’s happening here. We thought maybe other people wanted to know too, so we created this site, to show what’s taking place. We hope it helps you plan what to do and where you want to go next.
There are more than 250 Organised Group Activities that happen regularly on the Island every week and over 2500 places where you can find things to do. Each year the Island hosts around 500 Special Events sometimes 6 different ones on the same day. Feeling inspired to try something? If you can’t find what you are looking for then let us know. We will help you find it. Equally you may wish to try our Links Page listing other specific search sites. You may also want to check our Listing Policy
FAQ: Yes. We use stock photos. We are building up a library of great photos of the Isle of Man but you have to start somewhere. We would love you to send us your amazing photos. We always credit photos when we have a name.
FAQ: Where do we get are information? Ans: We ask for it directly, on the website, by email and over the phone. We also use information in the public domain. We want to know how you describe your business or event so we can write it in your own words. The best listings are when the organisation gives us their details. We can only write a generic description otherwise. We want to be as inclusive as possible, listing everybody on the Island, so that people can find you easily. That is why it is FREE to be listed. If you do not wish to be listed then let us know and we will remove you. You can always change your listing.
When we ask for information we often get the reply “It’s on our Facebook Page”. There are a lot of business on the Island who only inform Facebook customers and you need to be part of Facebook to find out what their business does. Like what time it’s open, what it sells and when it’s on. It is frustrating if you are not on Facebook. It is one of the reasons we created this site, for those people who want to support local business, but do not want a Facebook account.
We wish to formally thank Culture Vannin and the Arts Council for supplying us with photos and information. We would also like to thank the Department of Enterprise for allowing us access to their amazing picture library. Finally we wish to thank Wikipedia for creating their library which enabled us to find background information for various locations on the Island.
We love passionate people. If there is something you feel needs to be written about then get in touch. Our Spotlight page is all about you and what you think is important on the Island and makes this place so special. We want to hear from you. If you have written an article that you think may be of interest, then send it to us by filling out our Spotlight Article Form.
Sometimes Google or Trip Advisor doesn’t understand a location. It’s a big world out there with a lot of ground to cover. We include a full postal address together with the contact information, so if in doubt, please check with the venue. If it’s wrong please let us know.
We wish we were perfect but we’re not. Sometimes we make mistakes. Oops, it’s a pool table not a swimming pool. Not what you were expecting. Our bad. Tell us when we go wrong.
We write a generic entry for your business but we prefer if it came from you. We want to know what inspired you, what makes you unique and why you love what you do. Just use the Add My Details form to update your entry and if you would like to change the photo you can do that too.
Maybe you feel left out. Check our Listings Policy and see if we have a category for you. Then simply contact us and tell us how wonderful you are to see your name in print.
We show the usual opening hours or event times. However sometimes things vary or are seasonal. It is a good idea to check with the organisation’s website or Facebook page to be sure. Equally if you use your Facebook page for business please keep it up to date. Change of venue, date, opening hours or contact details? Let us know so we can spread the word.
If you are holding an event please let us know where it is, what time it starts, what time it finishes and how much it costs. A picture saves a thousand words so if you have one please include that too.
If you are no longer with us, then we are sorry to see you go. Hope you are getting the rest you deserve. Please let us know so that people can hear the news.
If you are new. Congratulations. Shout it out and inspire us all. We always want to hear about new exciting stuff to do.
Remember with everything that is happening on the Island there is always Time Enough.
