Leenaun, also Leenane, is a village and 1,845 acre townland in County Galway, Ireland. It is on the shore of Killary Harbour (Ireland's only fjord), on the northern edge of Connemara, and is on the route of the Western Way long-distance trail. The village is at the junction of the N59 and R336 roads in a valley between the mountains of Munterowen West and Devilsmother, with a direct view of Ben Gorm mountain to the north, across the fjord.

Leenaun was the setting for the film The Field and of Martin McDonagh's plays The Beauty Queen of Leenane and The Lonesome West.
