Pallaskenry is a village in County Limerick, Ireland. The village is located about west of Limerick city close to the River Shannon estuary. The town is reached by travelling about five kilometres (~3 miles) north off the N69 National Route that runs west from the city. Pallaskenry is a satellite town of Limerick city, many of its inhabitants work in the city but many also work in Shannon Town, County Clare (north across the estuary), and Askeaton, a town further west of Pallaskenry.

A pier on the Shannon Estuary is located a couple of kilometres further north of the town, at Ringmoylan. This point is almost directly across the estuary from Shannon Town, and offers a good view of aeroplanes landing and taking off at Shannon Airport.
