The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship 1896 was the tenth series of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship, Ireland's premier hurling knock-out competition. Tipperary won the championship, beating Dublin 8–14 to 0–4 in the final.
At the Gaelic Athletic Association's (GAA) annual congress it was decided to change the value of a goal. From 1892 until 1896 a goal was worth five points; however, the new change resulted in a goal being worth three points.
Final: (1 match) The two provincial representatives made up the two final teams with the winners being declared All-Ireland champions.
An objection was made and a replay ordered.
- The Munster final ended in a draw for the first time ever. A replay was played for the 1891 Munster final; however, this was due to an objection rather than a draw.
- The Leinster final went to a replay as Kilkenny launched an objection against Dublin.
- Tipperary became the second team to win back-to-back All-Ireland titles following their final victory over Dublin. Mikey Maher became the first person to captain two All-Ireland-winning teams.
