Baron Hemphill, of Rathkenny and of Cashel in the County of Tipperary, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1906 for the lawyer and Liberal politician Charles Hemphill, Solicitor-General for Ireland between 1892 and 1895. His elder son, the second Baron, was Crown Prosecutor for County Wicklow. He was succeeded by his younger brother, the third Baron.
