The Nunnery is particularly suitable for start-up businesses and ideally located to access the centre of Douglas on foot.

Working towards becoming a central hub for start-up businesses, while partnering with the University College Isle of Man and other institutions we are looking to unleash the talent available in the Isle of Man. Our goal is to establish a great place for like-minded people to gather and further their interests – whilst enhancing the business growth capability of the Isle of Man, together with the creation of exciting start-up businesses. We are privileged to be the current custodians and continue to invest significantly in improving the estate. 


We are privileged to be a partner of the Isle of Man UNESCO Biosphere and support its principles and ideals.

The Nunnery is striving to be an exemplar nature conservation site by protecting our natural resources through tree species preservation and re-foresting previously grazed areas with the planting of new trees and allowing Manx wildflowers to germinate in the meadows.
