The 2019 Northern Ireland Open (also known as the 19.com Northern Ireland Open) was a professional ranking snooker tournament that took place from 11 to 17 November 2019 in the Waterfront Hall in Belfast, Northern Ireland.[1] It was the sixth ranking event of the 2019/2020 season and a part of the Home Nations Series. It was the fourth edition of the Northern Ireland Open.

Defending champion Judd Trump defeated Ronnie O'Sullivan 9–7 in the 2018 final. In a rematch of the previous year's final, Trump successfully defended the championship, defeating O'Sullivan by the same scoreline.[2]
