The compound ThIr₂Si₂ crystallizes with a tetragonal crystal structure of the CaBe₂Ge₂-type (space group P4/nmm). Its low-temperature physical properties were investigated by means of magnetization, electrical resistivity, and heat capacity measurements, performed down to 0.35 K. The experiments revealed bulk superconductivity below T_{c} = 2 K. The obtained data indicate that ThIr₂Si₂ is a weakly-coupled type-II BCS superconductor.
