Ballynahinch or Ballinahinch is situated close to Recess in County Galway in the west of Ireland, on the road from Recess to Roundstone. It also lies on the route of the former railway line from Galway city to Clifden (the "Capital of Connemara"). The name comes from the Irish Baile na hInse meaning settlement of the island.

Ballynahinch Castle, built in 1684 for the Martyn family, is located there.
