Ballyteigue Strand lies west of Kilmore Quay, County Wexford. This long, sandy beach produces good bass fishing when the surf is up following a strong southerly blow and regularly produces bass to over the specimen size of ten pounds.

The estuary to Ballyteigue Lough, which is located behind the dunes and south of Duncormick, boasts some of the finest flounder fishing in Ireland and holds the current Irish record at 4.91lbs. Cullenstown, which lies on the western entrance to the Lough, can be very good on a flooding tide. Specimens of both bass and flounder have been recorded at this location. The use of large streamer flies in the tide at the entrance of the channel is a very effective way of taking bass and sea trout on light tackle. Further west the beach becomes broken up with rocks and boulders at Blackhall and bass forage over this ground on a flooding tide.

Fishing is available all year round, which peaks in autumn for bass and winter for flounder.
