Coachford is a village in County Cork, Ireland. It is located on the north side of the River Lee. The village is located in the Civil Parish of Aghabullogue.

Coachford owes its name to once being a crossing point over a stream for horse-drawn coaches, and this stream continues to flow beneath the village to the present day. The Lee was flooded for a hydroelectric power plant and farmland including many houses were flooded by the newly formed lake. Coachford is located around a crossroads where the R618 and R619 regional roads intersect. Mallow is north of the village, Macroom is west, Cork City is east and Bandon is south.
