The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship 1940 was the 54th series of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship, Ireland's premier hurling knock-out competition. Limerick won the championship, beating Kilkenny 3-7 to 1-7 in the final at Croke Park, Dublin.


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 Leinster Championship advanced directly to the All-Ireland final.
  • The winners of the Munster Championship advanced directly to a lone All-Ireland semi-final.
  • Galway, a team who faced no competition in the Connacht Championship, entered the championship at the All-Ireland semi-final stage where they played the Munster champions.
  • There were no representatives from the Ulster Championship in the All-Ireland series.
