Dalby is a small hamlet on the Isle of Man, located near the western coast. It lies on the A27 Port Erin to Peel road, five miles south of Peel.

The hamlet looks out towards the Irish Sea from the western side of Dalby Mountain. The Raad ny Foillan long distance coastal footpath runs through Dalby.

Prior to its closure in 2007, the hamlet had a public house called the Ballacallin Hotel which was known for its views of the sunset over Niarbyl. Niarbyl is home to a cafe and visitor center, as well as some traditional Manx cottages. It can be accessed by car, with parking available at the cafe.

During World War II, a radar station was located at Dalby. The radar station consisted of a number of bunkers, still visible in the fields between Dalby and Niarbyl and now part of local farm land.
