The 2019 European Parliament election in Ireland is the Irish component of the 2019 European Parliament election and will be held on Friday, 24 May 2019,[1] on the same day as the 2019 local elections. The election will be conducted under the single transferable vote.

Ireland's number of seats will increase from 11 to 13 following Brexit.[2][3] A Constituency Committee was established by the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government in July 2018 in order to facilitate the increase in seats. The Committee's report will be published by 24 September 2018.[4]
