Ballagarraghyn (in Manx: farm of O'Dorgan)[1] is situated between the 7th and 8th Milestone road-side markers on the Snaefell Mountain Course used for the Isle of Man TT races on the primary A1 Douglas to Peel road in the parish of German in the Isle of Man.

Ballagarraghyn was part of the Four Inch Course used for the Tourist Trophy car races held between 1905 and 1922, and was part of the course used for 1905 International Motor-Cycle Cup Races. It is part of the Snaefell Mountain Course used since 1911 for the TT races and from 1923 for the Manx Grand Prix races.

The approach to the Quarterbridge on the primary A2 Douglas to Peel road was widened and reprofiled and the jumps at the Highlander and adjacent to Ballagarraghyn Cottages were removed for the 1954 races.[2]
