The 1989 Italy rugby union tour of Ireland was a series of matches played between December 1988 and January 1989 in Ireland by Italy national rugby union team.

It was an historical tour because the match against Ireland was the first official and "full international" test match for Italy against the national team of one of "Home Unions"
