Arthur Walsh, 2nd Baron Ormathwaite (14 April 1827 – 27 March 1920) was a British politician, the son of John Walsh, 1st Baron Ormathwaite.

He was elected as a Conservative Member of Parliament for Leominster in 1865, resigning in 1868 by becoming Steward of the Manor of Northstead. This allowed him to stand for Radnorshire and replace his father in the by-election that ensued after the latter was elevated to the peerage.

Walsh was appointed Lord Lieutenant of Radnorshire in 1875, a post he held until 1895. He succeeded his father in the barony in 1881 and died in 1920.

He married Lady Katherine Emily Mary Somerset (1834–1914), daughter of Henry Somerset, 7th Duke of Beaufort.
