The 2012 All-Ireland Minor Hurling Championship (also known as the Electric Ireland GAA Hurling All-Ireland Minor Championship for sponsorship reasons) was the 82nd staging of the All-Ireland Minor Hurling Championship since its establishment by the Gaelic Athletic Association in 1928. The championship began on 21 April 2012 and ended on 30 September 2012.

Galway entered the championship as the defending champions, however, they were beaten by Tipperary in the All-Ireland semi-final.[1][2]

On 30 September 2012 Tipperary won the championship following a 2-18 to 1-11 defeat of Dublin in a replay of the All-Ireland final.[3][4] This was their 19th All-Ireland title and their first in five championship seasons. It was Tipperary and Dublin's first meeting in an All-Ireland final since 1954.

Clare's Bobby Duggan was the championship's top scorer with 3-49.
