Irish American Heritage Center
4626 N. Knox (at Wilson), Chicago, IL 60630
The Irish American Heritage Center is one of the premier Irish cultural organizations in the United States. It is a destination for people of Irish descent as well as those who wish to learn more about Irish heritage. There’s no place quite like the Irish American Heritage Center when it comes to providing the very best in Irish culture through the arts, history, education, dance, and social outlets. Located on the city’s northwest side in a renovated, turn-of-the-20th century building that sprawls over a full city block, the IAHC is dedicated to fostering Irish heritage, culture, and traditions in America. The Center boasts a 658-seat theatre, library, museum, art gallery, authentic Irish pub, dance practice studios, meeting rooms, and banquet rooms for parties. The building is wheelchair-accessible. We provide a broad selection of quality educational programs in traditional Irish music, dance, theatre, film, literature, language, Irish customs, and more. The Trinity Irish Dancers consider the IAHC their flagship location, having held rehearsals there since 1985.
