There have been four baronetcies created for persons with the surname FitzGerald, one in the Baronetage of Ireland and three in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom.

The FitzGerald Baronetcy, of Clenlish in the County of Limerick, was created in the Baronetage of Ireland on 8 February 1644 for Edmond FitzGerald. The second Baronet was attainted in 1691 and the baronetcy forfeited.

The FitzGerald Baronetcy, of Newmarket on Fergus, or Carrigoran in the County of Clare, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 5 January 1822 for Augustine FitzGerald. The title became extinct on the death of the fifth Baronet in 1908.

The FitzGerald Baronetcy, of Valentia in the County of Kerry, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 8 July 1880 for Sir Peter George Fitzgerald, 19th Knight of Kerry.

The FitzGerald Baronetcy, of Geraldine Place in St Finn Barr in the County of Cork, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 10 October 1903 for Edward FitzGerald, Lord Mayor of Cork in 1901, 1902 and 1903. The presumed third Baronet did not use the title and never successfully proved his succession, and was consequently never on the Official Roll of the Baronetage. His younger brother the presumed fourth Baronet (who was a Roman Catholic priest) did not use the title either and did also not successfully prove his succession and was therefore not on the Official Roll of the Baronetage, with the baronetcy considered dormant since 1957.
