The 1892 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship was the sixth staging of the All-Ireland hurling championship since its establishment by the Gaelic Athletic Association in 1887. The championship began on 30 October 1892 and ended on 26 March 1893.
At the Gaelic Athletic Association's (GAA) annual congress held in Thurles on 13 January 1892, some changes were made to the existing rules of the game. Firstly, a goal was made equal to five points. Secondly, teams were reduced from twenty-one to seventeen players. Perhaps most importantly of all, it was also decided that county champions, when representing the county, were allowed to select players from other clubs within the county.
A total of just three teams contested the championship, the fewest number of participants since the inaugural championship.

- The All-Ireland final between Cork and Dublin is the very first championship meeting between the two teams. The game ended in disarray as the Dublin players walked off with five minutes left in the match following a dispute over a goal.
