Abu Ghraib (Bahasa Arab: أبو غريب‎, Abū Ghurayb) ialah sebuah kota dalam Wilayah Baghdad di Iraq, beberapa jauh dari arah barat pusat ibu negara of Baghdad. Ia mempunyai kependudukan sebanyak 189,000 orang pada tahun 2003. Ia ditubuhkan pada tahun 1944.

Kota ini merupakan tempat terletaknya suatu penjara terkenal yang pernah digunakan untuk menahan golongan penentang politik pada zaman Saddam Hussein - ribuan tahanan diseksa dan dihukum bunuh di sini. Kemudahan tapak tersebut kemudiannya digunapakai Angkatan Tentera Amerika Syarikat semasa pendudukan mereka di Iraq sehingga diketahui pihak antarabangsa pada tahun 2003.[1][2][3][4][5]
