Croagh (Irish: Cróch)[1] is a small village in County Limerick, Ireland. It is located between Rathkeale and Adare just off the N21 national primary road, 22 kilometres (14 miles) south west of Limerick City. The village was originally part of this route before construction of the Croagh by-pass in 1986.

Cróch in Irish means either "round hill" or "saffron".[1] The village is in the agricultural area known as the Golden Vale.
