Carrigaline (Carraig Uí Leighin in Irish meaning "rock of Lyons") is a single-street village (or sráidbhaile) on the Owenabue river in County Cork, Ireland. It is located about 12km from Cork City which can be reached by car in 25 minutes. Carrigaline derives its name from Carraig Uí Leighin, a nearby out crop of rock.

Currabinny Forest Trail is just a short distance east of Carrigaline and represents one of many scenic walks in Carrigaline and its environs. Golf and tennis are also available locally.
