Llandyrnog is a large village and parish in Denbighshire lying in the valley of the River Clwyd, about three miles from Denbigh and five miles from Ruthin.


Llandyrnog has a local church—St. Tyrnog's—and a small Welsh-language chapel. There are also two pub restaurants, The Kinmel Arms and The White Horse and a pub, the Golden Lion. In the heart of the village there is also a small butchers' shop and a general store which includes a Post Office. Llandyrnog also has a small primary school teaching through the medium of English. The former Chest Hospital, a mile away at Llangwyfan, is now a residential centre for adults with learning disabilities.

The main employer is the ACC Llandyrnog Creamery on the outskirts of the village, which mostly produces hard pressed and cheddar cheese.

The village has good road links to the county town Denbigh and the main A541 road at Bodfari in Flintshire, and is served by buses number 76 and 53.
