Slieveboy (Irish: Sliabh Buí) is a mountain located in north County Wexford, Ireland. It rises directly above the village of Askamore, midway between Carnew and Camolin. The mountain is, except for the area around the summit, completely covered in forest. There is a network of forest roads on the hill, and two communication masts on the summit.

It is never called 'Slieveboy' by locals, but always its Irish form which is pronounced 'Shleeav Bwee'.
