Abergwili is a village in Carmarthenshire, Wales, lying on the River Tywi.
It is known for its Bishop's Palace, home to the Bishop of St David's until 1974 and now a museum. The bishop now lives at Llys Esgob.
Abergwili has seen a substantial increase in population in recent years with new property developments but has kept its character and rural tranquility.
The village is home to the Carmarthen Quins who are fierce rivals with Carmarthen Athletic who are situated in Carmarthen itself.
A tourist attraction in Abergwili that has received a lot of publicity recently is the Merlins Hill Centre, which is a farm which has been opened up to the public and has a lot of activity, especially for younger children. It is situated at the top of the hill (and has fabulous views) where reportedly the Wizard Merlin's bones were discovered.
The Wheat Sheaf pub in the village is one of the oldest in Carmarthenshire retaining rural charm.
The pinnacle of the village, Abergwili FC were formed in 1991, when it was felt the village needed to be re-launched as a vibrant suburb of Carmarthen. With many changes in the playing staff and management structure over its 15 years of existence, it is hoped a stable period in the club's history is about to be embarked upon. John Camrody's resignation as Team Coach is heralding a new era. Carmody will be a hard act to follow after taking 'Gwili to successive promotions, first as reserve team coach, then with the first team, which culminated in narrowly missing out on promotion to the Premier Division. However, after relegation two seasons ago, last year was a period of consolidation and rebuilding.
In the 2004/2005 season Abergwili FC Seconds Team went through an 18 game unbeaten run. The gaffer, Mal Davies was inspirational in this run choosing to mix a team of experienced, versatile, veteran journeymen with young, pacy, enthusiastic kids.
