Foynes is a village and port in County Limerick, in midwest Ireland, situated on the southern bank of the Shannon Estuary, where the River Shannon flows into the Atlantic Ocean. Foynes is rumoured to be the place where Irish Coffee was invented.


Foynes played a key role in facilitating air traffic between Europe and the United States during the 1930's and 1940's when seaplanes used it as refuelling stop. Today, the nearest airport is Shannon Airport (SNN), located in a satellite town not far from the city of Limerick, at the head of the estuary.


The Port of Foynes is operated by the Shannon Foynes Port Company, the port authority for the entire estuary. Among the many marine operations, is the cruise port in Foynes.

Coach access and parking facilities are available on the quay. The nearest car rentals are in Limerick.
