Ian Stuart Dunbavin (born 27 May 1980 in Liverpool, Merseyside) is an English professional footballer who currently plays as a goalkeeper for Accrington Stanley F.C..

Dunbavin played in the youth team at Liverpool F.C. but did not get a first team game so left for Shrewsbury Town F.C. in 2000. In 2004, after playing more than 100 times for Shrewsbury, he joined Halifax Town F.C. but was sacked by the club after a drink driving offence after only just regaining his licence. He had a spell at Scarborough F.C. before joining Accrington Stanley in the summer of 2006.

In January 2009, Dunbavin was arrested on suspicion of assault and affray by Merseyside Police, as a result of a bar brawl, for which Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard had previously been arrested. He later admitted to the charge of affray. In August 2009, Dunbavin was sentenced to 18 weeks in prison, suspended for a year, for his part in the brawl. He was also ordered to do 150 hours of unpaid work, and expressed "remorse and shame" for throwing two punches at the victim.
