Connah's Quay (Welsh: Cei Connah) is the largest town in Flintshire, north Wales, lying on the River Dee, on the border with England. It grew as a port, and is now an industrial centre, home to three power stations. The major part of Corus Steelworks lies in the town. The town is also home to Connah's Quay Nomads F.C. and Connah's Quay Cricket Club. Swimming baths have recently been refurbished. Wepre Woods, a major green space in Flintshire, is controlled by the County Council's Rangers. Also, the River Wepre is heard at the beginning of the Stone Roses album Second Coming. The Roses were at the time recording in nearby Northop. Connah's Quay has a town council of twenty members.

The town's name is believed to have to come from a former landlord of "The Old Quay House" which lies right on the docks in the town, and the docks soon became known As "Connah's Quay".

Schools in Connah's Quay include Connah's Quay High School, Bryn Deva Primary, Wepre Primary, Custom House Lane Primary and Golftyn Primary.

Deeside College is also situated in the town.

In the last decade several large housing developments have been built in Connah's Quay and the town has a booming property market, with house prices steadily increasing the town appears to have finally shaken the effects of the mass redundancies from major employers in the 1970's and 1980's.
