Firdgum (West Frisian: Furdgum) is a small village in Franekeradeel in the province of Friesland, the Netherlands. It had a population of around 100 in 2004.

The Dutch reformed church of Firdgum was demolished in 1794 as it was in a state of disrepair, but the 13th-century church tower still remains to date. The tower houses a clock dating from 1471.

In the Yeb Hettingaskoalle (a cultural center in nearby Tzummarum) there is an archeological support group with a collection of local finds and artifacts and varying expositions of modern artists.
