The 1991 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship was the 105th staging of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship, the Gaelic Athletic Association's premier inter-county hurling tournament. The championship began on 19 May 1991 and ended on 1 September 1991.

Cork were the defending champions but were defeated by Tipperary in the Munster final replay.[1] Westmeath qualified for the All-Ireland quarter-final as winners of the B championship.

Tipperary's Michael Cleary was the championship's top scorer with 3-35. Tipperary's Pat Fox was the choice for Texaco Hurler of the Year.
