Markéta Irglová (born 1988, Valašské Meziříčí, Czech Republic) is a Czech musician, songwriter and actress. As of 2007, she resides in Dublin, Ireland.

Irglová began playing music at age seven, when her parents bought her a piano and sent her to lessons. When she was nine, her father bought her a guitar and she immediately began playing and learning songs by ear. She released an album, The Swell Season on Overcoat Recordings in (2006) with Glen Hansard of the band The Frames, whom she had met when he was visiting Prague. She and Hansard dated for two years, but separated on good terms and are still great friends.
