Ballyhack is a small fishing village on the estuary of the Three Sisters rivers, in the south-west of County Wexford.

The village may be an ideal film location for scenes set in small fishing villages, coastal villages, or scenes that are set on or near fishing boats. The village is built around the busy quay which gives filmmakers a location that intertwines a life in the village and a life on the water. A number of fishing boats and some pleasure craft moor at the quay. The village is also the departure point for a passenger and car ferry that travels across the estuary to Passage East (in county Waterford). Ballyhack also has spectacular views of the surrounding estuary, the sea, and the gorgeous tall hills on the far side of the estuary.

Dominating the skyline of the village itself is Ballyhack castle. A 15th century castle that adds a unique personality to the village. Also near Ballyhack is a graveyard that has very impressive views over the estuary.
