Abbeyside/Ballincourty GAA Club is a Gaelic Athletic Association club based in Abbeyside, County Waterford, Ireland. The club plays both hurling and gaelic football and competes in both senior codes in County Waterford.

The club in its present incarnation was formed from the merger of Abbeyside Hurling Club and Ballinacourty Football club in 1967. In essence, the present club can trace its way back to 1927 when Abbeyside Hurling Club was formed. Ballinacourty Football Club was formed later in 1947.

The club still uses two separate names depending on which sport they are playing. The name Abbeyside is still used as the name for its hurling teams, while its football teams still go under the name of Ballinacourty. The club was the 2007 Waterford club of the year [1]
