It's a local (IoM) tradition that, whenever you cross any kind of bridge, you "say hello to the fairies". It's good luck! (Or, rather, it's bad luck not to!) ;) For those who enjoy whisk(e)y, ask about "Manx Spirit" -- it's CLEAR, maybe a little peaty, and is not allowed to be called "whisk(e)y".. and it's apparently OK if you choose to have a drop of water with it - just ask at the bar.
Beautiful countryside,rolling hills and fabulous beaches it's not all about the bikes,but if your an adrenalin junkie come over for the TT races or Grand Prix,road races around the Islands roads reaching speeds of over 200 mph
