Clashmore (Irish Clais Mhór) is a village in west County Waterford, Ireland. The village and surrounding district are very low lying, as the name Clais Mór --- The great hollow or trench --- implies; elsewhere the land is rather hilly. It is also a parish in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Waterford and Lismore.
It is the site of a distillery built by Lord Hastings the thirteenth Earl of Huntingdon which operated from c. 1835 to 1840, producing 20,000 gallons of whiskey annually. The mill was then used until c. 1897 as a flour mill. The distillery chimney is unique in Ireland as the only one which spans the river which propelled the mill.
Clashmore House was a mansion built (however never completed) was built on the site that is currently occupied by St Mochua's well.
