Irish American Heritage Center

Occupying a building that sprang up at the turn of the 20th century, the Irish American Heritage Center (IAHC) somehow manages to cram Ireland into one of Chicago’s city blocks. Work from Irish artists hangs in the building’s art gallery, books from Irish authors fill its library, Irish plays light up its 658-seat theater, and Irish food and drinks delight the crowd on the main floor at the Fifth Province Pub. The IAHC also has a knowledgeable staff of instructors, who teach classes on everything from Irish dance and music to Irish language and genealogy.

Customer Reviews

I love Irish culture, music and dance and this event definitely doesn't let you down but this year it seemed more of a drunk fest than a family event. Very overcrowded, everyone drinking and not enough food vendors. Kids were actually bored and they enjoy the dance and music as well.

The irish American heritage festival is my favorite festival in the city. It's where the real Irish people go, much different than the sloppy mess that is st patricks day. Good family fun, something for everyone!
