The Location

The Isle of Man is an English speaking island nestled between the UK & Ireland. As the 8th richest country in the world it takes less than an hour’s flight (with operators including EasyJet and British Airways) from the entertainment and shopping of London. The island offers a remarkable quality of life with short commutes, high salaries, low domestic tax rates, a rich Celtic heritage, and a passionate outdoor pursuits community.

Recently named a ‘UNESCO world biosphere’, the island is simply stunning, with beautiful hills, glens, and beaches. With an extremely diverse economy which includes many of the world’s largest e-gaming companies, it has 83,000 residents, many of which have purposely chosen to relocate there. With unemployment at 1% and crime rate even lower it’s easy to see why this green and friendly Island is nicknamed the ‘Gem of the Irish sea’.
