Tuosist (Irish: Tuath Ó Siosta) is a parish in the far south of County Kerry, Ireland. It shares the Béara Peninsula with the neighbouring parishes of County Cork, and the Caha Mountains form the county border. The nearest town is Kenmare. The parish is part of the barony of Glanrought and is divided into three District Electoral Divisions - Dawros, Ardea and Glenmore.
Saint Kilian from County Cavan is the patron saint of the parish. He is believed to have departed from Kilmacillogue harbour in Tuosist on his mission to Würzburg, Germany. An annual pattern takes places on his feast-day, every July 8.
