Felinfoel is a small village and community council ward on the River Lliedi on the northern border of Llanelli, Carmarthenshire, west Wales, with a population of about 2,000 people. The Felinfoel brewery, home of Double Dragon ale, is the oldest in Wales. The rugby union fly-half Phil Bennett, who played for Llanelli, Wales and the British and Irish Lions, is one of Felinfoel's most famous residents.

Felinfoel is part of the Llanelli Rural ward of Carmarthenshire County Council. It is generally considered a suburb of the town of Llanelli.

The village is renowned for it's close community and ties with many famous names that have starred in past Llanelli RFC line-ups.
