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.

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