Screeb (meaning "the furrowed land") is a small village in south-west Connemara, County Galway, Ireland. It is located on the R336 regional road, north of Casla and southwest of Oughterard.

It was the location of one of Ireland's few peat-burning power stations. This was uneconomic but it was a welcome source of employment locally at the time.
