Greyhawk Ruins is a World of Greyhawk adventure module published in 1990 by TSR for the first edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons rules.

The adventure describes the ruins of and dungeons beneath Castle Greyhawk. The module was written by Blake Mobley and Timothy B. Brown, and is a more serious take on the dungeons of Castle Greyhawk than the 1988 module WG7 - Castle Greyhawk. The 128-page book features cover art by Fred Fields and interior art by Thomas Baxa, Mark Nelson and David Simons. The adventure is designed for five to seven characters of levels 2 to 15.

In 2007, Wizards of the Coast released Expedition to the Ruins of Greyhawk, an adventure book for 3.5 edition D&D that updates the material in Greyhawk Ruins.
