Ardsallis (Irish: Ard na Sailchis, meaning "height of the sally kesh") (sometimes written as Ardsollus) is a townland in County Clare, in Ireland. The village is just outside the village of Quin and is to the south-east of Ennis. Previously it was served by the Ardsollus and Quin railway station which functioned from 1859 until 1963.

The village lies in the civil parish of Tomfinlough.[1] In past times the area was famous for its horse racing and equestrian fairs.[2]
