About the Isle of Man
For a small Island (of just over 83,000 residents at last count), the Isle of Man certainly pulls its weight on an international scale. It is home to a leading business centre renowned for its innovation and professionalism but also prides itself on offering its residents a healthy work/life balance– a quick scan of locate.im shows that 86% of residents rate their quality of life as ‘excellent’
The beauty of the Isle of Man is undeniable; from the quaint streets of its historic towns to the breath-taking views from its hills. Apparently, the average commute in the Island is just 20 minutes which means residents regularly go from boardroom to beach to relax at the end of the day.
Just a 20 minute flight from Dublin airport (on a clear day you can even see the MourneMoutains!) the Island is a nature lover’s paradise, boasting 95 miles of coastline and 169 miles of public footpaths. It is the only entire jurisdiction in the world to be given UNESCO Biosphere status and it has an incredible 26 ‘Dark Sky Sites’- the most in the British Isles.
Outdoor adventures in the island are plenty and include coasteering and paragliding. If speed is more your style, you’ll love the TT- the world’s most famous annual road race.
