Isle of Man... who's going?

So my honeymoon happens to be in Ireland while this is going on. I'll be 4 or 5 hours away. Wondering if it's possible to hop over there for a day? Has anyone been that could give me some in sight on how to make the most of a day there or what day to go? I don't think I'll be there for the main race but might catch some qualifying. I arrive in Ireland June 1st and leave the 6th.

Dam you scheduled your wedding and honey moon around isle of man but you left out the most important part on how you are finishing the leg of your journey.

It just so happened to turn out that way. Well be staying in a few castles out there. Sounds like the race will be more hassle than its worth.

ive asked a bunch of travel agents. None of them have ever had much luck on helping. But yea you need to plan in advance like 8 months before you go. Also hotels sell out a year in advance. Push the wedding back a year and try again.
