Dan Neville (born 8 December 1946) is an Irish Fine Gael politician. He is a Teachta Dála (TD) for the Limerick constituency. He previously represented the Limerick West constituency.
He was a member of Limerick County Council from 1985 to 2003. Due to the abolition of the dual mandate Neville stepped down from Limerick County Council to be replaced by his son Tom Neville. Neville first stood as a candidate for Dáil Éireann at the 1987 general election, when he failed to win a seat. He did not contest the 1989 general election, but at the subsequent Seanad election he won a seat on the Labour Panel. He was unsuccessful again at the 1992 general election, but was re-elected at the 1993 election to the 20th Seanad.
He finally won a seat in the Dáil at the 1997 general election and retained his seat at the 2002 and 2007 general elections. In the 2011 general election, he was elected for the Limerick constituency. He is president of the Irish Association of Suicidology. He was party Deputy spokesperson on Health with special responsibility for Mental Health from 2010 to 2011.
He was appointed as chairperson of the Fine Gael parliamentary party in May 2014.
