Loughshinny ( ; )[2] is a small village in Fingal, County Dublin, Ireland. The seaside village is between Skerries and Rush. Loughshinny's more famous landmarks are the Martello Tower on the nearby headland of Drumanagh and some unusual rock formations visible on some of the many coastal walks in the area.

The headland of Drumanagh contains a major Iron Age fort, where important Roman artifacts have been found. Some archaeologists have suggested the fort was a bridgehead for Roman military campaigns, while others suggest it was a Roman trading colony or a native Irish settlement that traded with Roman Britain.[3][4]

Famous people associated with Loughshinny include Senator Richard A. Butler, Esther Kenny, Dermot Forken, Brian Lyons, John Murray and Paul Corr.
