Glasthule (; Irish: Glas Tuathail, meaning "Toole's Streamlet") is a suburb of Dublin, Ireland. It is along Dublin's East Coast, between Dún Laoghaire and Dalkey.

Every year it celebrates Bloomsday (celebrating the day featured in James Joyce's highly acclaimed novel Ulysses).

The James Joyce Tower is located in nearby Sandycove.
