Moyasta (Irish: Maigh Sheasta, meaning "plain of Asta") is a hamlet in County Clare, Ireland, situated between Kilkee and Kilrush on the N67. The hamlet is bordered by the Moyasta River, flowing from the bogs to Poulnasherry Bay.
Moyasta was part of the Vandeleur Estate. In the post-famine era, the name Vandeleur became synonymous with the worst of landlord evictions, with over 20,000 evicted from the part of their estate in the Kilrush Union.
