Arthur O'Connor (1 October 1844 – 30 March 1923), was an Irish politician and Member of Parliament (MP) in the Parliament of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from 1880 to 1900.

He was elected to the House of Commons as MP. for Queen's County at the 1880 general election, until the constituency was divided at the 1885 general election.
