Pen-y-groes is a village in Carmarthenshire, South Wales which developed as a settlement as a result of the anthracite coal trade.

It has a primary school and one pub, The Farmers Arms. It also has a Rugby Union club, affiliated to the Welsh Rugby Union, and a cricket team which plays in the Carmarthenshire League.

The village was well known as the headquarters of the Apostolic Church. The denomination hosted their International Convention in the village every year from 1916-2002. The church moved its main office to Swansea in 2002 but they still have their Bible college and substantial land in the locality.
