Oyrareingir is a village on the Faroese island Streymoy in the Tórshavnar municipality.

It is situated at the very head of the Kollafjørður-fjord, on either side of the mouth of the Dalá river. The 2005 population was 44. Its postal code is FO 415. This hamlet is so tiny and its few houses so dispersed among the 'outskirts' of the neighbouring villages of Signabøur and Kollafjørður that few maps mention it. Even the Faroe Islands' best online atlas doesn't.[1] The Faroe Islands' main road (No. 10) from Tórshavn to Klaksvík passes right through Oyrareingir. The only other road -a small one leading to some farms- is called á Oyrareingjum.
