The Kerry Group Irish Fiction Award is an annual award for Irish authors of fiction, established in 1995. It was previously known as the Kerry Ingredients Book of the Year Award (1995–2000)[1] and the Kerry Ingredients Irish Fiction Award (2001–2002).

The winner of the prize is announced in May/June each year at the opening ceremony of the Listowel Writers' Week in Kerry.[2]

The prize is sponsored by the food group Kerry Group, and is the largest (currently €15,000) monetary prize for fiction available solely to Irish authors.[3]
