The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship of 1958 was the 72nd edition of Ireland’s premier hurling knockout competition. The championship ran from May to September of that year, culminating with the All-Ireland final, held at Croke Park, Dublin on 7 September. The match was contested by Tipperary and Galway, with Tipperary taking the title by 4-9 to 2-5. The prize for the winning team was the Liam McCarthy Cup.
The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship was run on a provincial basis as usual. All games were played on a knockout basis whereby once a team lost they were eliminated from the championship. The format for the All-Ireland series of games ran as follows:
- The winners of the Munster Championship advanced directly to a lone All-Ireland semi-final.
- The winners of the Leinster Championship advanced directly to a lone All-Ireland semi-final.
- Galway, a team who faced no competition in the Connacht Championship, were given a bye directly into the All-Ireland final without playing a single game.
- There were no representatives from the Ulster Championship in the All-Ireland series of games.
