Moneague is a small town in Saint Ann, Jamaica on the main road between Kingston and Ocho Rios.

In the colonial days, the town prospered as a stopover for the rich English on their journey.

The main attractions in the town are Moneague College (which is housed in the former colonial-era Moneague Hotel) and Moneague Lake. In 2006, the lake became the subject of headline news as it flooded its banks, destroying much local property.
