Offaly were the defending champions but were defeated by Cork in the All-Ireland semi-final. Meath, who had participated in the championship since 1993, declined to field a team.

On 12 September 1999, Cork won the championship following a 0-13 to 0-12 defeat of Kilkenny in the All-Ireland final. This was their 28th All-Ireland title, their first in nine championship seasons.

Cork's Joe Deane and Kilkenny's Henry Shefflin were the championship's top scorers with 1-24 apiece. Cork's Donal Óg Cusack and Offaly's Stephen Byrne were deemed the best goalkeepers after keeping three clean sheets each. Cork's Brian Corcoran was the choice for Hurler of the Year.
