Annagh Church is a medieval church and National Monument in County Kerry, Ireland.

Annagh Church is located at the north end of Annagh burial ground, 3.6 km (2.2 mi) southwest of Tralee, on the south side of Tralee Bay.

The church dates to the 12th–15th centuries. There are many ancient sites in the area: Tonakilla Fort, a ringfort and standing stones.

The doorway is unusual in Ireland, with drip-moulding completely around it, making it similar to the Anglo-Norman style.
