The Slieve Aughty (Irish: Sliabh Eachtaí) are a mountain range in the western part of Ireland spread over both County Galway and County Clare. The highest peak in the Slieve Aughty Mountains is Maghera in Clare which rises to 400m (1,314ft). The mountain range consists of two ridges divided by the Owendallaigh river which flows west into Lough Cutra.

The Cenél Áeda na hEchtge partly derived their name from them.
