Aclare (Irish: Áth an chláir, meaning "Ford of the plain") is a village in County Sligo, Ireland, and the main village in the parish of Kilmactigue. Formerly, the village of Aclare was not part of the same-named townland, but straddled the border of the adjacent townlands of Lislea and Carns, though later the borders of the townland were extended to encompass the village. The village is situated on the Inagh (also spelt "Eignagh") river, a tributary of the Moy.
