Telltown (Irish: Tailtin[1]) is an outdated place name in County Meath, Ireland, for the area between Navan and Kells. It was named for the Irish mythological figure or goddess, Tailtiu. The Taillten Fair was held there in medieval times, and was revived as the Telltown Games for a period in the twentieth century.

Mound structures near Telltown have been asserted by some to be ancient man-made earthworks 2500 years old.
