The Irish Sika Stag is a subspecies of the Sika deer, a medium-sized deer that is native to Asia. Sika deer were introduced to Ireland in the late 19th century and have since established a wild population, primarily in the western and southwestern parts of the country.

Irish Sika Stags are smaller than the Irish Red Stag, typically weighing between 80 and 120 kg. They have a dark brown coat, often with spots, and the males have antlers that are generally smaller than those of the Red Stag. The antlers are typically forked with several tines and can grow up to 75 cm in length.

Like the Irish Red Stag, the Irish Sika Stag is a popular game animal, and hunting is allowed during the designated season. They are also valued for their role in the ecosystem and for their potential contribution to the genetic diversity of the Sika deer population as a whole.
