The Irish Philosophical Society has been in existence since 1962. It counts among its members not only most professional philosophers in Ireland, but also students and members of the public interested in philosophy.

The aim of the Irish Philosophical Society is to promote philosophical discussion in Ireland. To this end, the society organises two conferences each year at different locations in Ireland, and publishes the Yearbook of the Irish Philosophical Society.
