Collins began his career with the youth club Cherry Orchard, where his father David, and uncle Eamonn both started their careers.

His first start came ten days later when he played the full 90 minutes of Stoke’s 1–0 loss away to Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium.

Collins started the first few matches of the 2019–20 season and was given the captain’s armband by Nathan Jones against Leeds United, becoming Stoke’s youngest captain in the process. He was sent off for the first time in his career in an EFL Cup defeat at Crawley Town for a mistimed challenge on Panutche Camará. Collins remained on the fringes of the first team for the rest of the season under the management of Michael O’Neill, making a total of 17 appearances in the 2019–20 season.

He scored his first two goals for the club in a pair of home game ties during April 2022, against Everton and Southampton.

Burnley was relegated after a 2–1 defeat against Newcastle United on the final day of the season.
On 12 July 2022, Collins signed with the Premier League club Wolverhampton Wanderers on a five-year contract for a fee of £20.5 million, an all-time record transfer fee for an Irish player.
