Crossbarry (Irish: Crois an Bharraigh) is a small village on the R589 Regional Road in the Innishannon parish, about sixteen kilometres west of Cork City, Ireland and about ten kilometres east of Bandon. The River Owenabue flows through the village. The West Cork Railway once ran through the village, and Junction railway station served as a connection to Kinsale, just to the east. The Crossbarry Ambush took place at the village during the Irish War of Independence.
It has two schools nearby: Gurrane and Knockavilla, as well as numerous creche, childcare and playschool facilities. In 2007 the road from Bandon was improved, bypassing the Crossbarry Ambush memorial.
