Dublin St Patrick's', a division of Dublin, was a UK parliamentary constituency in Ireland. It returned one Member of Parliament (MP) to the British House of Commons 1885–1922. It had three wards – Merchant's Quay, Usher's Quay and Wood Quay.

Prior to the 1885 general election, the city was the undivided two member Dublin City constituency. In 1885, Dublin was divided into four constituencies: the St Patrick's, Dublin College Green, Dublin Harbour and Dublin St Stephen's Green constituencies.

In 1918, the city was allocated seven seats: in addition to the four existing constituencies, the new divisions were Dublin Clontarf, Dublin St James's and Dublin St Michan's.

From the dissolution of 1922, the area was no longer represented in the UK Parliament.

Dublin St Patrick's in 1918 gave Sinn Féin about two-thirds of its votes. Countess Markiewicz was the first woman to win a Parliamentary election in Britain and Ireland, at the first election where women were allowed to be candidates.

In common with other Sinn Féin members, elected in 1918, the MP did not take her seat at Westminster but instead participated in the revolutionary Dáil Éireann.
