Kilmoyley, officially Kilmoyly (Irish: Cill Mhaoile),[1] is a village County Kerry, Ireland. It is 6km southeast of Ballyheigue.


The majority of development in Kilmoyley has occurred over the past ten years. Prior to this, the original settlement comprised a church and two or three dwellings. Recent development has occurred in a loose, somewhat haphazard pattern radiating from the crossroads at which the church and public house are located. Its definition is undermined by the level of land around the cross roads which remain undeveloped and by the set back of existing buildings forming the core area. In effect there is no real urban form. The area as a whole presents as a linear suburban cluster unrelated in nature or form to a village structure. Building styles are varied but in the majority of cases are suburban in form. In addition, building lines are fragmented and together these factors have militated against the development of an attractive and coherent settlement. There is a national school in Kilmoyley called Scoil Naomh Eirc.
