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.[2]


A famous landmark is Moyasta Junction, the triangular train station where the line of West Clare Railway coming from Ennis and Milltown Malbay splits with separate lines to Kilkee and Kilrush.
