Duniry is a small village between Tynagh and Abbey, in County Galway, Ireland. Nearby is the townland of Limehill, the south of which has a bog.

Duniry's most noted landmark was Egan's castle, now derelict; it flourished from 1450 to 1600[1] and is associated with stories of Clanricarde and their brehons.[citation needed] In the early 15th century, Murchadh Ó Cuindlis probably compiled An Leabhar Breac at Duniry.

Duniry has a hurling team.
