Irene Dailey (September 12, 1920 September 24, 2008) was an American actress, perhaps best known for her work on Broadway and on daytime television.

Dailey was born in New York City, the daughter of Helen Theresa (née Ryan) and Daniel James Dailey. Her brother was the late actor, Dan Dailey.

Dailey received the 1966 Drama Desk Award for her work in Rooms, and played "Nettie Cleary" in the original Broadway production of the Tony Award-winning drama, The Subject Was Roses (1964). Additional Broadway credits included Idiot's Delight, The Good Woman of Szechwan, and You Know I Can't Hear You When the Water's Running.

In 1969, Dailey joined the cast of the long-running CBS serial The Edge of Night as Pamela Stewart, and in 1971 she won the Sarah Siddons Award for her work in Chicago theatre. Dailey later joined the cast of Another World in 1974 as the fourth actress to play the role of family matriarch Liz Matthews until 1986, and again from 1987 to 1994. Her work on Another World was recognized with a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Actress in 1979; two of her fellow nominees were her AW costars Victoria Wyndham and Beverlee McKinsey. Her film credits include No Way to Treat a Lady (1968), Five Easy Pieces (1970) and The Amityville Horror (1979).
