The 1937 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship was the 51st staging of the All-Ireland hurling championship since its establishment by the Gaelic Athletic Association in 1887. The championship began on 16 May 1937 and ended on 5 September 1937.
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 Munster Championship advanced directly to the All-Ireland final.
- The winners of the Leinster 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 Leinster champions.
- There were no representatives from the Ulster Championship in the All-Ireland series.
|5 September Final||Tipperary||3-11 – 0-3||Kilkenny||FitzGerald Stadium|
Referee: J Flaherty (Offaly)
- Westmeath arguably enjoy their best ever season of championship hurling. Three successive victories allowed them to qualify for their very first, and to date their only, Leinster decider.
- That All-Ireland final was the first to be played outside of Croke Park and, indeed, Dublin for thirty years. A builders' strike delayed the construction of the Cusack Stand in Croke Park meaning an alternative venue had to be found and the new FitzGerald Stadium in Killarney was chosen.
