The Irish Fallow Deer (Dama dama) is a subspecies of the fallow deer found in Ireland. They are smaller in size compared to other subspecies, with an average weight of around 50 to 70 kg for males and 35 to 50 kg for females.

Fallow deer were introduced to Ireland by the Normans in the 12th century for hunting purposes, and they quickly established a wild population. Irish fallow deer have a distinctive appearance, with a dark coat and white spots on their back and flanks. The antlers of male Irish fallow deer are typically palmate, with broad, flattened tines.

The population of Irish fallow deer declined significantly in the 19th century due to habitat loss and hunting pressure, but conservation efforts have led to their recovery in recent years. They are now protected under Irish law, and hunting is only allowed under license.

Irish fallow deer can be found in several locations throughout Ireland, including Phoenix Park in Dublin and Killarney National Park in County Kerry. They are herbivorous and feed on a variety of plants, including grasses, leaves, and bark.
