RTÉ One is the most popular and most watched television channel in Ireland offering a wide variety of both homegrown and imported programs.

RTÉ One is the main television channel of Irish state-owned broadcaster, Raidió Teilifís Éireann (RTÉ), and it is the most popular and most-watched television channel in Ireland. It was launched as Telefís Éireann on 31 December 1961, it was renamed RTÉ in 1966, and it was renamed as RTÉ 1 upon the launch of RTÉ 2 in 1978. It is funded partly by the government's license fee; the remainder of the funding is provided by commercial advertising. Because RTÉ is funded partly by the license fee it shows considerably fewer advertisements than most other channels available in Ireland and Northern Ireland.

RTÉ One is available to 98% of the Irish population in HD on the Saorview DTT service. It is also available in Northern Ireland via Saorview, Freeview, Sky, and cable provider Virgin Media. The channel is also available online through RTÉ Player.

RTÉ One began life as Telefís Éireann in 1961. It was renamed simply as RTÉ in 1966, upon the renaming of the Radio Éireann Authority as Radio Telefís Éireann, and became RTÉ 1 upon the launch of RTÉ 2 in 1978.

Originally the station broadcast in black and white throughout the country using the European 625-line standard, as well as on the 405-line television system in the northern and eastern parts of the country; since the mid-50s, many people in these areas already had 405-line TV sets receiving BBC and UTV/HTV transmissions from Wales and Northern Ireland.

A standards conversion unit was used to provide the 405-line service, but when this electronic device failed, the optical conversion was used, reportedly by directing a 405-line camera at a 625-line monitor.

The first program to be pre-recorded for the new television service was The School Around the Corner, an interview/quiz show created and presented by Paddy Crosbie and produced by James Plunkett.

PAL color transmissions began in 1968, and the first program made and transmitted in color was "John Hume's Derry." The first outside broadcast in color for RTÉ Television was the 1971 Railway Cup Finals (Gaelic Athletic Association), and soon after that, the Eurovision Song Contest 1971 from Dublin.

In the 1970s the studios in RTÉ's Television Centre started being equipped for color, the first was the news studio in 1974, studio 2 in 1975 and finally studio 1 (the largest studio, used for productions such as The Late Late Show) in 1976.

RTÉ was also the sole Irish TV channel until 1978 when RTÉ 2 (known as Network 2 between 1988 and 2004) was created. The Irish language station TG4 began in 1996 as Teilifís na Gaeilge (TnaG). Since 1998 RTÉ One also competes with Virgin Media One (formerly known as "TV3").

Since it began broadcasting, RTÉ One has competed with BBC One and UTV and in 1980s RTÉ began competing with other satellite and cable channels that are widely available across Ireland through cable subscription services due to the high take-up of cable TV from pan-European and UK channels since the 1960s, and the continued roll-out of MMDS and satellite during the 1980s and 1990s.

From 1961, RTÉ Television would only broadcast from 17:35 until around 23:30 during the Winter months. In 1975 this changed slightly with transmission starting at around 15:30 and concluding around midnight (00:00). 24-hour broadcasts began in the late 1990s. In 1988, RTÉ One launched a schedule with a new news bulletin at 13:00. In the past RTÉ One did not offer "breakfast television" but since 2013 the station now airs an early morning current affairs show called Morning Edition which also simulcast on RTÉ News Now, Virgin Media One is the only indigenous broadcaster in direct competition for this early morning market with Ireland AM since 1999. RTÉ One during the Olympics and special breaking news or election coverage will provide a special bulletin in the mornings.

On 6 July 2017, RTÉ One extended its on-air hours, the channel now started at 6:00 am rather than the later 6:20 am.
