The Lismullen Hurdle is a Grade 2 National Hunt hurdle race in Ireland which is open to horses aged four years or older. It is run at Navan over a distance of about 2 miles and 4 furlongs (4,023 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in November.

The event was formerly restricted to amateur jockeys, and it used to be contested in mid December. For a period its distance was 2 miles and 5 furlongs. It ceased to be an amateur race in 1991, and at the same time it was cut by 2 furlongs. Its present length was introduced in 1992, and two years later it was given Grade 3 status and moved to early November. The race was promoted to Grade 2 level in 1997.
