Llanrhystud is a Welsh seaside village, post town and electoral division on the A487 road in the county of Ceredigion, nine miles south of Aberystwyth. It is named after the early Christian Welsh saint Rhystud, to whom the village Church in Wales (Anglican) church is dedicated.
Apart from the church, the village has a Memorial Hall, which contains a memorial table to the local fallen in the two World Wars. There is a public house, the Black Lion. The village was served by Llanrhystyd Road railway station on the now dismantled Carmarthen to Aberystwyth Line nearly seven miles (11.3 km) away up the A487 at the larger village of Llanfarian.

The present structure of the Church in Wales parish church dates from 1852. Some signs of an earlier building have been discovered at the west end, under the steepled belfry, whose lower part dates from the 14th century or earlier. The first mention of an incumbent is of "Griffith Powell, [who] on July 24th 1582 was a witness before the Court Leet at Aberystwyth." The document adds that Powell had been "in 1544 appointed priest-in-charge of Llanrhystud at the yearly stipend of five pounds."
