Spirit Radio is an Irish Christian and religious radio station which commenced broadcasting in January 2011. It is licensed by the Broadcasting Commission of Ireland (BCI) to broadcast to the cities of Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Galway and Waterford on FM. In July 2012, due to license obligations, the station extended its coverage by opening a medium wave channel on 549kHz.[1] [2]

The station originally based out of Hume House and uses the studio formerly used by FM104.[3] In 2012 the station moved its studio's to Bray, Co. Wicklow taking up residence in what use to be Sunshine (formerly Dublin's Country Mix).

Its format includes news, talk and music. The music tends to be contemporary Christian or soft rock.

The station is a registered charity and survives on donations from businesses and listeners along with the work of volunteers.
