A coastal site left to Manx National Heritage following the death of Mr Ralph Teare in 2001. The site is of social, archaeological and geological importance. In late summer 2005 a visitor centre, cafe and car park opened near the site. The name Niarbyl or Yn Arbyl in Manx means the tail, based on the long reef which extends from the shoreline.


Located near the village of Dalby on the west side of Island.

By Vehicle:
Take any roads sign posted to Peel or the west. Once in Peel, head south towards Glen Maye, Dalby and Port Erin. At Dalby locate a small sign near the roadside pointing to Niarbyl, which is near the coast.

By Bus:
Plan your journey with our Bus and Rail Timetables.

By Railway:
The west side of the island is not serviced by the Railways. Take a vehicle or bus.

Visiting Niarbyl

There is still a small car park along the sea front with footpaths for the public. Visitors are encouraged to park at the visitor centre. The Cafe is opened when the visitor centre is and offers a range of meals. It is pleasant to see the visitor centre, cafe and car park being situated away from the original site and therefore not taking away from the nature beauty of the location.
