The 2010–11 Irish Cup (known as the JJB Sports Irish Cup for sponsorship reasons) was the cup's 131st edition since its introduction and the 89th time that the trophy was presented to the winners of the annual knock-out competition in Northern Ireland. The competition began on 18 September 2010 with the First Round and ended on 7 May 2011 with the Final.

Linfield were the champions, winning their fifth Irish Cup in the last six seasons, by defeating Crusaders 2–1 in the final, who were appearing in their second final in the last three seasons.[1][2] Crusaders qualified for the second qualifying round of the 2011–12 UEFA Europa League because Linfield had already qualified for the Champions League via the league.
