Kilchreest (Irish: Cill Chríost) is a civil parish of County ClareIreland. It contains the village of Ballynacally and is part of the Roman Catholic parish of Ballynacally (Clondegad), which includes the civil parish of Clondagad to the north.

The parish forms the central part of the western seaboard of the River Fergus estuary. It includes some islands, the largest being Inishmore or Deer Island.

Since most of the older parishes are dedicated to Irish saints, the name implies that the parish is of comparatively recent origin, The old church was plain. As of 1893 it was ruined, although the walls were still in good condition. Near to the church is the ruined castle of Dangan-moy-builc, owned by Teige MacMahon, of Clonderalaw in 1580
