Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with the Irish

The Cincinnati Irish Heritage Center has everything you need for a successful St. Patrick’s Day celebration. It is the Cincinnati home for everything Irish and has won praise and great support from Ireland.

The Center will open on both St Patrick’s Parade Day, Saturday March 16th, and on St. Patrick’s Day itself, Sunday March 17th, at 12 noon.

Enjoy the wonder of day and night live Irish & Celtic Music, Song, Sing-a-longs, Dance,  Pipes,  a Children’s Room with arts and crafts and fun, Storytellers and St. Patrick himself.  

Learn the Irish Jig and Irish speak, eat delicious Irish food (made by the Irish Ladies), do some trinket shopping, and enjoy the craic and comaraderie, exhibits, libations and more.

There is free parking behind the building, which is on the corner of Eastern and Tennyson Avenues. A bus stop is directly across the street on Eastern.

This celebration is held within a 44,000 square foot building which was the former McKinley School, and has been lovingly restored as the Irish Heritage Center - now known and operating as a thriving Community Arts Center in Columbia Tusculum.

Next Generation Singers at the IHC - the talented McKenna sisters, Riley and Colleen, performing in the Children’s Room to the delight of special visitor Ciaran Canon, current Minister of the Irish Republic,  and all who hear their magic.  This is the first ever visit of a Minister of the Irish Republic to honor the City of Cincinnati and Irish Center with his presence - a great honor.
Room-by-room the building has been re-purposed so all can enjoy their favorite pleasure. There is a Theater, a Dance Room, a Tea Room, a Music Room, Library, Art Room, Museum and an Authentic Irish Pub. These and offices, a Green Room, and a Genealogy space, were all created over the past nine years.

Receive a Cead Mile Failte (a Hundred Thousand Welcomes), which is known as the true Irish welcome to each and every person who joins in the celebration.

A Hundred Thousand Welcomes to everyone. The Irish know how to party and are  famous for Irish hospitality. This  message is written in Irish and is seen at the entry of the Irish Center.
Members of the Irish Center with current cards admitted free; Small Fee for the public.
