Slaget ved Tory Island var et sjøslag under revolusjonskrigene som ble utkjempet den 12. oktober 1798 mellom franske og britiske skvadroner utenfor nordvestlysten av Donegal i Irland. Det var siste trefning i det irske opprøret i 1798. Med slaget ved Tory Island endte det siste forsøket til den franske marine på å landsette et betydelig antall soldater i Irland under krigen.
