Stormont is a first-class cricket ground in Belfast, Northern Ireland. It is situated in the grounds of the Stormont Estate, the seat of government in Northern Ireland, and is the home of Civil Service North of Ireland Cricket Club.

It is one of three ODI grounds in Ireland (the others being the Clontarf and Malahide in Dublin). The ground was established in 1949 and saw its first ODI in June 2006: the inaugural ODI match for the Irish cricket team, against England. In 2007, a three-match ODI series between India and South Africa was played at this ground, and in 2008 it hosted the qualifying tournament for the ICC World Twenty20.
