Bealnamulla (Irish: Béal Átha na Muille, meaning "mouth of the mill ford") is a village in County Roscommon, Ireland. It lies 4 km (2.5 mi) from the centre of Athlone just beyond the urban fringe, on the R362 regional road.

The Meehambee Dolmen, a Megalithic tomb is located about one kilometre south of the village.

The area has experienced rapid growth in recent years attributable to Athlone's rapid expansion, and although still a village of its own, can also be considered a suburb of the town.
