The 2007 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship was the 121st staging of the All-Ireland hurling championship since its establishment by the Gaelic Athletic Association in 1887. The championship began on 22 May 2007 and ended on 2 September 2007.

Kilkenny were the defending champions, and successfully retained their All-Ireland crown following a 2-19 to 1-15 defeat of Limerick.

A total of twelve teams contested the championship, including eleven teams from the 2006 championship and new entrant. Westmeath were relegated in 2006 and contested the 2007 Christy Ring Cup, while Antrim, winners of the 2006 Christy Ring Cup, gained automatic promotion back to hurling's top tier.[1][2]
