Kirk Ella is a village in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England and is located around 5 miles (8 km) west of the city of Kingston upon Hull. Together with West Ella it forms the civil parish of Kirk Ella and West Ella.
Kirkella, Westella, Northella and Southella were originally separate villages and settlements connected by rural pathways and cartroads on the approaches to the Yorkshire Wolds. Over the past 60 years these villages have developed into an affluent suburb covering 4.5 miles (7.2 km) to the west of the city of Hull. Links with Hull and its river industries brought prosperous merchants to live in their Manors and Halls, some of which still exist as residences.
The village is surrounded to the east by the neighbouring villages of Willerby and Anlaby, to the north by Willerby, and to the west by West Ella and Swanland. To the south lies a few miles of agricultural land, before the town of Hessle.
The village has a local shop, newsagent and other businesses.
