Fraher Field (Irish: Páirc Uí Fhearchair) is a GAA stadium, located in Dungarvan, County Waterford, owned by the Waterford GAA County Board. It has a total capacity of around 15,000.

With the obvious exception of Croke Park, Fraher Field has been the venue for more all-Ireland senior hurling finals than any other venue, having hosted the 1903, 1905, 1907 and 1911 deciders.

Various improvements have been made to the stadium over the last 15 years, including the addition of a new stand on one side of the pitch, and the improvement of standing facilities in general. There are discussions about building a second stand on the other side of the pitch, although any action is likely to be put off for some time due to the likely refurbishment of Walsh Park in Waterford city.
