Foel Dinas is a mountain in Wales. It is the north-westernmost peak of the Dyfi Hills and sits above the town of Dinas Mawddwy.

In the 1870s its eastern and northern slopes were planted with trees by Sir Edmund Buckley, the lord of the manor of Mawddwy. On the northern flank is Llyn Foel Dinas, a lake which was dammed to form a reservoir, providing the water supply to Buckley's manor house in Dinas Mawddwy.
