List of organisations based in the Republic of Ireland with royal patronage


Royal Charters and Royal Patronage were historically granted to organisations in Ireland by the Monarch of Ireland when Ireland was part of the Kingdom of Ireland and later the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. Since the Irish Independence from the United Kingdom as the Irish Free State in 1922 and the abolition of the monarchy by the Constitution of Ireland in 1937 and the Republic of Ireland Act 1948 no new Royal Charters in Ireland have been granted.

Despite the end of the monarchy in Ireland, several organisations based in the Republic of Ireland have retained the "Royal" element in their names. The continued used of this naming style in Ireland is sometimes questioned by commentators as being outdated and a reminder of a colonial past.
