The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship 1934 was the 48th series of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship, Ireland's premier hurling knock-out competition. Limerick won the championship, beating Dublin 5-2 to 2-6 in a replay of the final.
The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship was run on a provincial basis as usual. All games were played on a knockout basis whereby once a team lost they were eliminated from the championship. The format for the All-Ireland series of games ran as follows:
- The winners of the Leinster Championship advanced directly to the All-Ireland final.
- The winners of the Munster Championship advanced directly to a lone All-Ireland semi-final.
- Galway, a team who faced no competition in the Connacht Championship, entered the championship at the All-Ireland semi-final stage where they played the Munster champions.
- There were no representatives from the Ulster Championship in the All-Ireland series.

- In honour of the golden jubilee a special set of All-Ireland medals were struck and presented to the championship winner, and a postage stamp was issued on 27 July 1934, which was designed by Richard King (artist).
"They were all delighted in Limerick over the G.A.A. Jubilee Stamp. They regard it as an omen that the colours chosen for the jersey of the hurler depicted on the stamp are those of the winners of the 1934 All-Ireland".
