Rathdangan (Irish: Rath an Daingean, meaning "Ringfort of the Stronghold") is a village in County Wicklow, Ireland.

Coordinates: 52°55′N 6°33′W / 52.917°N 6.550°W / 52.917; -6.550Rathdangan was once the bustling heart of the local community sporting two pubs, two shops and a post office. While still the focal point of the neighbourhood only one pub remains. Known by locals as Junior's [1] the name over the door is Byrne's. A community shop operates most mornings, in the parish hall "The Village Pantry".

The local church in Kilamote is about 1 km from the village and houses some spectacular examples of stained glass by the artistic genius in the medium, Harry Clarke.
