The Socialist Party of Ireland was formed in 1949 and was affiliated to the Socialist Party of Great Britain. The name was in use until 1959, when the World Socialist Party was established, although the party does not appear to have been active throughout that period.

The Socialist Party of Ireland was initially established by the Belfast Socialist Group, which had been set up that year, in collaboration with some Dublin socialists.
