The Castle Arms-The Glue Pot

The Quayside, Castletown,, IM9 1LD

There are licence records going back to the 1600’s for the Glue Pot. It was built as an dwelling for the gaoler of the castle and was then converted to an Ale house used by the Garrison stationed at Castle Rushen. It is the oldest pub on the Island but as it was not open to the public so the Mitre in Kirk Michael claims that title.

The pub is home to the “World Champion Tin Bath Race” which happens every summer in Castletown bay.
