Dyrøy is a municipality in the county of Troms, Norway.

Dyrøy was separated from Tranøy September 1, 1886.

The municipality is named after the island of Dyrøya, today connected with the mainland with a bridge. However, most people are to be found in [http://www.dyroy.kommune.no/index.php?&id=33377&cat=2082&showid=135&startslide=9&nf=1 Brøstadbotn ] on the mainland.
