Saltmills (Irish: Muileann an tSaile) is a small coastal village located in south-west county Wexford.

Saltmills is a rural coastal village with a population of around 200 people located at the head of a small inlet that enters Bannow Bay. The inlet gives Saltmills some interesting coastal features for filmmakers. Spanning the inlet is the 1800s granite Tintern Bridge. Mudflats form at the mouth of the inlet and are accessible from the village.

The village got its name from the medieval mills that once existed near the village.
