Templenoe (Irish: An Teampall Nua, meaning "new temple") is a settlement in County Kerry, Ireland. It is situated four miles from Kenmare, on the N70 road to Sneem, which forms part of the Ring of Kerry.

Templenoe is the location of the Ring of Kerry golf club. There is a Gaelic Athletic Association ground, a pier, a post office and a Catholic chapel of ease for the Kenmare parish. Dromore Castle is located nearby.

The Spillane brothers, Pat Spillane, Mick Spillane and Tom Spillane, famous Gaelic football players for the County Kerry team, were born in Templenoe. Pat Spillane now owns a bar in the village, called Pat Spillane's bar.

In the HBO TV series Boardwalk Empire, Templenoe is the birthplace of fictional character Margaret Schroeder née Rohan. Schroeder is played by Scottish actress Kelly Macdonald.
