Pontymoile (Welsh: Pont-y-moel) is a large suburb of Pontypool in Torfaen, Wales. It is directly below Pontypool and is bordered by Griffithstown and New Inn to the south. It is all but merged with the nearby suburbs of Cwmynyscoy and Upper Race.

It contains a mixture of traditional Welsh terraced houses, early Edwardian townhouses and modern 1960s flats and local authority housing. Pontymoile is spread across a large area and so is home to much of Pontypool's facilities including West Monmouth School, Coleg Gwent's Pontypool campus, the Pontymoile Basin on the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal as well as St. Matthew's Anglican Church and the nondenominational Pontymoile Christian Mission on Rockhill Road. Pontymoile has its own primary school as well as a small selection of shops and public houses.

The area was subject to massive development in the late 1990s when a new flyover was constructed to divert traffic from what had become a 'bottle-neck' road system in Pontypool. This resulted in many buildings (including the original Pontymoile Mission). The development also resulted in a new road system to West Monmouth School and Coleg Gwent's Pontypool campus.
