Húsareyn is a mountain located on the island of Streymoy, the largest of the Faroe Islands, Denmark. Standing at 345 metres (1,132 ft) above sea level, it is dwarfed by other Faroese mountains such as Slættaratindur.

The mountain overlooks the Faroese capital, Tórshavn, from the northwest and is clearly visible around the town. It is a popular hiking destination for tourists because of its easy accessibility from the capital.
