Celtic Woman: Destiny is the tenth studio album by the group Celtic Woman. This is Celtic Woman's first album to feature their newest members Mairead Carlin and Éabha McMahon.

Destiny features vocalists Susan McFadden, Mairead Carlin, Éabha McMahon, and fiddler Máiréad Nesbitt, with former member Méav Ní Mhaolchatha, Rebecca Winckworth, and Oonagh as guests.

Tara McNeill, who would later become a principal performer in Celtic Woman, performed the harp in the Destiny DVD and PBS TV special as part of the orchestra.[1][2] When PBS transmitted its video of the Destiny show, a cloaked woman (Dublin-based Irish actor, film maker, dancer and part-time model Sophie Merry) appeared in the titles sequence and the sequences that framed the pledge breaks.

The album was nominated for Best World Music Album at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards. This was the first Grammy nomination for the group.
