Ewyas Lacy is a hundred in the south-west of Herefordshire, adjacent to the borders with Monmouthshire and Brecknockshire. It is bounded by Huntington Hundred to the north; by Webtree to the east; by Monmouthshire's Skenfrith Hundred to the south; by Abergavenny Hundred, also in Monmouthshire, to the south-west; and by Brecknockshire's Talgarth Hundred to the west. There is also a small border with Radnorshire to the north-west, at Hay-on-Wye.
It was part of the ancient Welsh region of Ewyas claimed by the de Lacy family following the Norman Conquest. It is the least populous of the county's hundreds, with a population in 2011 of 1,965, falling to 1,912 if detached parts are disregarded.
It comprises the ancient parishes of:
- Clodock (Craswall, Longtown, Llanveynoe & Newton)
- Cwmyoy (Fwthog & Bwlch Trewyn)*
