Ships in the Forest is a studio album by Irish traditional singer Karan Casey, and the first to be released primarily on her own label. The album features much of Casey's live band, as well as her brother-in-law and husband, both members of the band Buille. The album features one song in Gaelic and many Irish traditional songs. There is also a song by Joni Mitchell.

The album's title is a reference to the last track, the traditional Scots song I Once Loved a Lass, which includes an enigmatic verse that asks "how many ships sail through the forest?"
