I've heard a good bit about congers from the quay at ballyhack? Not exactly east coast but Wexford regardless. Maybe the hook too but not the biggest I'd say. Going further east maybe Rosslare Harbour?
2019 species: codling, whiting, flounder, dab, dogfish, spurdog, sole, smooth hound, bass

there are some surprisingly large congers available on Tramore at the slip at night - they appear to come in via the rocks on the far right as you face the sea.
Saw a 20 lber almost wreck a surfcaster - it had taken all three baits. Key is fishing around HW at night... and there's always the possibility of a bass.

HI Kieran
Kilmore quay harbor wall and mouth of harbor would be worth trying
Too many lures ... not enough time...

Or from the rocks up at the Guillamene if you were Tramore bound.
Try again, fail again. Fail better.
