Ulster Late 15th Century.png

Clandeboye (from the Irish Clann Aodha Buí; the family of Hugh with the blonde hair) is in modern times an area of Bangor, County Down, Northern Ireland. It is named after the Clandeboye family, a branch of the O'Neill dynasty. They settled in the 1330s after the death of the Earl of Ulster in what is now south Antrim and north Down, giving their name to the territory. The spelling of the name has varied over the years, and had been written variously as Clandeboye, Claneboye, Clandyboy, Clannaboy, and Clanaboy.

Clandeboye still exists in the title of living hereditary Irish princes. The current Prince of Clandeboye is Hugo Ricciardi O'Neill, styled O'Neill of Clanaboy among the Gaelic nobility of Ireland.

Clandeboye has also been adopted as the name of an electoral ward of North Down Borough Council.
