At the 2011 census, the community had a population of 1,079 of whom 63.7 percent were Welsh speakers. The comparable figures for the 2001 census were a population of 982, 67 per cent of whom were Welsh speakers.
The churchyard of St Digain's parish church in Llangernyw is the site of an ancient yew tree, Llangernyw Yew, estimated to be around 4,000 years old. This is thought to be the oldest living tree in Europe (see List of longest-living organisms).
Also of note is the Sir Henry Jones Museum, which is dedicated to the life of the philosopher and academic, Henry Jones, who grew up in the village. The museum is his childhood home, a small cottage, which has been preserved internally and externally.
