Sulby Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Isle of Man...

Sulby is famous for its mountain glen through which runs the Silverburn river. Part of the glen was given to the Manx National Trust and is mostly dense woodland with streams, waterfalls, wooden bridges and a Monk’s Well. A second part has the oldest water-powered merry-go-round in the world, with horses dating back to the early 1900s. Here visitors will also find a play area and boating lake.

Beautiful Sulby is located at Ballasalla and can be accessed not only by car and bus but also by steam railway. Panoramic views which include Cronk Sumark and Gob y Volley can be enjoyed from Sulby Claddagh, the only genuine common left on the Isle of Man. The area is largely used for camping and recreation.
