Jane Barlow (1857 - 17 April 1917) was an Irish poet and fiction writer. She is noted for her poems describing the lives of the Irish peasantry, in relation to both landlordism and the Irish potato famine.
Barlow was the daughter of the Reverend James William Barlow, vice-provost of Trinity College, Dublin. Born in Clontarf, County Dublin, she spent most of her life living in a thatched cottage in Raheny, in the townland of Ballyhoy. 
Barlow was educated at home and is said to have been frail and slight. The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography says that Barlow was a frequent contributor to the Dublin University Review, from 1866 on, under the the pseudonyms "Antares Skorpios" and "Felix Ryark".
She died in Bray, County Wicklow.
