College Park, Dublin hosted Ireland women's first and to date only Women's Test match in 2000

This is a list of cricket grounds in Ireland, inclusive of all-Ireland.

Cricket was introduced to Ireland by the English in the towns of Kilkenny and Ballinasloe in the early 19th century.[1] The game increased in popularity until the early 1880s. The Land War in the 1880s resulting from the Irish Land Commission and a ban on playing "foreign" games by the Gaelic Athletic Association set back the spread of cricket.[1] Anyone playing foreign games such as cricket would be banned from the extremely popular Irish games such as hurling and Gaelic football, which in turn had a detrimental impact on the game.[1] The ban was not lifted until 1970, after which time cricket has continued to grow in popularity.
