The best and most convenient way to get the island is to fly.
As you are planning to travel from the U.S.A, we recommend flying via Dublin, Manchester or London Gatwick as these airports offer a range of international routes.
Aer Lingus via Dublin has an extensive route network from the United States. Flybe.com operate via Manchester and Easyjet from London Gatwick to the Isle of Man.
You can also fly via London Heathrow, but the disadvantage is that there is no direct route between the Isle of Man and Heathrow. From Heathrow, you would need to fly via Dublin or Manchester or get a train to central London then to Liverpool or Heysham to catch the ferry to the island.
Travel by sea is another travel option, but availability is limited. Sailings from England (Heysham & Liverpool) are every day while crossings from Dublin are once per week or every other day from Belfast.
We do recommend searching flights locally as you can get these cheaper, although our team can advise you on the best options.
