Ilișești (German: Illischestie) is a commune located in Suceava County, Romania. It is composed of two villages, Brașca and Ilișești. The commune was called Ciprian Porumbescu (with Ilișești village its center) and included Bălăceana and Ciprian Porumbescu villages until 2004, when these were split off to form separate communes.

In the 1780s, 12 ethnic German families settled in Ilișești in the course of the Josephine colonization.[1]
