Live at Slane Castle is a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert video released in 2003, two years after the release of their last concert DVD, Off the Map. The concert taped was their second show at Slane Castle in Ireland, the Foo Fighters also played as the opening act, and have their own DVD footage of the concert. It was filmed on August 23, 2003 and the DVD was released on November 17, 2003. The DVD shows the full concert except for the Donna Summer song I Feel Love covered by guitarist John Frusciante and "Soul to Squeeze", because Frusciante broke a string during that song. Additionally, a mistake made by Frusciante during "Maybe" has been edited on the DVD.

The DVD was received with mixed reviews, but most gave the live footage a seal of approval. Many were upset with the lack of pre-Blood Sugar Sex Magik songs. Nothing from the band's first four albums was performed. Upon release, Columbus Alive columnist Wayne King declared the DVD to be the "greatest live concert of all time." The DVD artwork is also noteworthy for its lack of quality photographs and 'thrown-together' packaging compared to similar live concert DVDs released by other artists.

Following the concert, Joe Strummer's cover of Redemption Song can be heard playing through the venue's speakers as outro music while fireworks go off in the air.
