This is a partial or incomplete list of places in countries other than Ireland named after places in Ireland.

Massive emigration, often called the Irish diaspora, from Ireland in the 19th and 20th centuries resulted in many towns and regions being named or renamed after places in Ireland.

The following place names sometimes share strong ties with the original place name. Places named for Irish words but which are not current or historical places in Ireland are excluded.
