Live at the Albert Hall is a live album by The Dubliners. It was their last recording for the Major Minor label. Recorded in 1968 and released in 1969, it contained live versions of some of their recent hits as well as a version of "Whiskey on a Sunday", which had been a big hit for Danny Doyle. The rebel ballad "Off to Dublin in the Green" was issued on early pressings of the album, but was later dropped. The album features the original band members.

In November 2006, an edited version was released by EMI as a third disc as part of The Dubliners Platinum Collection.
