The 2000 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship was the 114th staging of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship, the Gaelic Athletic Association's premier inter-county hurling tournament. The draw for the 2000 fixtures took place in November 1999. The championship began on 6 May 2000 and ended on 10 September 2000.

The championship was won by Kilkenny who secured the title following a 5-15 to 1-14 defeat of Offaly in the All-Ireland final.[1] This was their 26th All-Ireland title, their first in seven championship seasons.

Cork were the defending champions but were defeated by Offaly in the All-Ireland semi-final.[2]

Teams[edit]

A total of eighteen teams contested the championship, including sixteen teams from the previous years' championship. Carlow and Westmeath entered the Leinster championship while Roscommon did not field a team.

The Championship[edit]

Format[edit]

The 2000 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship was run on a provincial basis as usual. It was a knockout tournament with pairings drawn at random in the respective provinces - there was no seeds.

Each match was played as a single leg. If a match was drawn there was a replay. If that match ended in a draw a period of extra time was played, however, if both sides were still level at the end of extra-time another replay took place.
