Killenaule ("Cill Náile") is a small town km to mi | 19 | abbr=yes | precision=0 east of Cashel, County Tipperary in Ireland on the R689 and R691 regional roads. It lies at the southwestern edge of the Slieveardagh Hills.

Killenaule came to national prominence in Ireland due to the discovery of the Derrynaflan Chalice. It was discovered in "Derrynaflan Island" in February 1980, by a Mr. Webb and his son who were scanning the area with a metal detector, then a relatively new device on the market. The Chalice was part of the "Derrynaflan Hoard", consisting of an 8th century chalice, a strainer or ladle, a paten — all enclosed in a bronze basin buried 45 cm below ground, and found about 20 metres from a church ruin. This archaeological find continues to bring many students of history and tourists to the area to view the exact location of the find.

Derrynaflan Island is situated approximately km to mi | 6 | abbr=yes | precision=0 northwest of Killenaule.
