Craig Ireland (born 29 November 1975 in Dundee) is a retired Scottish professional football player.

Ireland began his a career at Aberdeen, although he only made one League Cup appearance during his time at the club. He moved to Dunfermline Athletic in February 1996 for £75,000 and would make 56 appearances in total for the Pars. His spell with Dundee began initially on loan in October 1999, then as a £50,000 transfer that December. He did not prove a great success at Dens Park so joined Airdrieonians and Notts County on loan respectively, making a permanent move to the latter.

He continued playing in England after leaving Notts, having spells at Barnsley, Peterborough United and Bristol City. On 13 June 2005 he returned to Scotland, joining Scottish Premier League side Falkirk on a free transfer. He would only play one season for the Bairns and spent another on the sidelines before being forced to retire through injury in April 2007.
