Welcome

Thie yn Droghad (Laxey Harbour Chalets) is now closed as we are  retiring. However we hope that new owners will be found quickly

We apologise if this has caused any inconvenience and would like to take this opportunity to say thank-you to all the many guests who have stayed with us over the last 21 years.

Thie yn Droghad is one of the few self-catering accommodations on the Island where you can stay so close to a harbour and river that you go to sleep to the gentle sound of water.

For the comfort of our guests, Thie yn Droghad is non-smoking (in accordance with Manx law) and pets are not allowed.

New photos and descriptions for Thie yn Droghad will be added shortly , and for your convenience prices and vacancies – please see below. Thie yn Droghad offers quality accommodation in a truly gorgeous location that is both quiet and tranquil yet giving easy access to all parts of the Island.

The chalet nestles below a woodland hill, is south facing and fronted by the river.

Laxey promenade and beach is a five minute walk, with a café serving cakes snacks and ice creams plus a children’s playground. Although pebbles at high water, a long sandy beach with rock pools  is exposed at low water.

Thie yn Droghad is only a few minutes walk from the Beach.

Whether for a gentle stroll or for the more serious walker, the Island is a perfect place. The beach is 5 minutes walk away, and the upper village 15 minutes.

The ‘salmon walks’ around Laxey take you along byways to the Laxey Wheel, Glen Gardens and Valley Gardens. Maps are available to guide you.

SNAEFELL MOUNTAIN RAILWAY

Take the Victorian electric tram from Laxey to the summit of Snaefell.  On a clear day you can see England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Also from Laxey the Manx Electric Railway to either Douglas and Ramsey, stopping off at all the glens along the route.

THE GREAT LAXEY MINES RAILWAY

This small fun very narrow gauge railway runs ½ mile along the route of the old mines ore tramway towards the Wheel. Run by volunteers at weekends and Special holidays

THE GROUDLE GLEN RAILWAY

Between Laxey and Douglas on the coast road, this Victorian Attraction runs for about ¾ mile along the valley and around the headland to a small café with  oustanding sea views.

ISLE OF MAN STEAM RAILWAY

From Douglas the Isle of Man Steam Railway meanders through woodland and headland to Port Erin at the Southern end of the Island with many stops along the way.

THE GREAT LAXEY WHEEL

This is a unique spectacle, the largest working water wheel in the world. If you have a head for heights you can climb to the top of this 72 ½ foot diameter wheel. You can also follow the paths and even go underground.The Wheel is about 1 ½ miles up the valley from the chalets.

HORSE DRAWN TRAMS

You can ride along Douglas promenade on a horse drawn tram at a much slower pace than the traffic alongside you. Although this feature was in doubt for 2016, it will now be operating.
