Ardee (Irish: Baile Átha Fhirdhia) is a barony in County Louth, Republic of Ireland. Ity is named after the town of Ardee (Irish: Baile Átha Fhirdhia, "town of Ferdiad's ford").

Ardee is located in central County Louth, between the Keeran River and Dundalk Bay. The barony is bordered to the north by Louth; to the south by Ferrard; and to the west by Lower Slane, County Meath and Farney, County Monaghan.
