Isle of Man Go Congress
Port Erin - the congress venue
The Isle of Man Go Congress will be held in the small town of Port Erin in the South West of the island.
Port Erin is a quiet pretty seaside resort with a sandy beach and a pleasant ambience. There are
many attractive walks around Port Erin, plus boat tours to the Calf of Man (a National Heritage Area, equivilent to a National
Park), an island wildlife sanctuary with a
bird observatory and flock of Loaghtan sheep. Other places of interest are the Steam Railway Museum and
Marine Interpretation Centre. The shops in Port Erin are fewer than in Douglas, but tend to have more character.
A supermarket is close to the Congress centre. Port St. Mary and Castletown are a short steam train or bus ride away.
The congress will be held in the
| Cherry Orchard Aparthotel in Port Erin overlooking the bay.
