Glenealy (Irish: Gleann Fhaídhle) is a village 8 km (5.0 mi) west of Wicklow Town, in County Wicklow, on the R752. The Dublin - Rosslare railway line also passes through the village.

Since the extension of the N11 dual-carriageway from Dublin to within 5 km (3.1 mi) of the village in 2004, it has been undergoing rapid growth, attracting people commuting to Dublin.
