The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship of 1974 was the 88th edition of Ireland’s premier hurling knockout competition. The championship ran from May to September of that year, culminating with the All-Ireland final, held at Croke Park, Dublin on 1 September. The match was contested by Kilkenny and Limerick, with Kilkenny taking the title by 3-19 to 1-13. It was Kilkenny's second All-Ireland title in three years.



The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship was run on a provincial basis as usual. All games were played on a knockout basis whereby once a team lost they were eliminated from the championship. The format for the All-Ireland series of games ran as follows:

  • The winners of the Munster Championship advanced directly to a lone All-Ireland semi-final.
  • The winners of the Leinster Championship advanced directly to a lone All-Ireland semi-final.
  • Galway, a team who faced no competition in Connacht, played the All-Ireland 'B' champions in a preliminary round before the All-Ireland series of games. The winners of this game advanced to a lone All-Ireland quarter-final meeting with London.
  • There were no representatives from Ulster in the All-Ireland championship.
