Llangeitho is a village and community in Ceredigion, Wales situated due west of Tregaron, Mid Wales.

It is primarily associated with the name of Daniel Rowland and the Welsh Methodist revival of the 18th century. It witnessed many periods of religious revival throughout that century, but the most powerful was that of 1762. William Williams Pantycelyn wrote in defence of the rejoicing, dancing and jumping for joy, seen during the 1762 revival. Welsh Methodists earned the name 'Jumpers' as a result.

Long considered to be a stronghold for of the Welsh language, the 1970s saw an influx of people from outside Wales, mainly from England, which saw the percentage of Welsh-speakers decline from 83% in 1971 to 55% just ten years later. The figure for 2001 was 57%.
