Last year, over 1,500 people celebrated St. Patrick’s Weekend at The London Irish Centre, and this year’s festival is shaping up to be even bigger and better.
Our entire venue will be buzzing with Irish music, sport, film and dance over three days of community, craic and culture in the heart of Camden.
Not only will your eyes and ears be pleased: you can also experience a real taste of Ireland thanks to our food market, which will have stalls serving delicious Irish dishes. And, of course, you know that the Guinness will be good.
As if that’s not enough, income from our events supports vulnerable Irish people in London. So, by joining the festivities at The London Irish Centre, you’re directly supporting Irish people in need.
Are you still looking for ‘the craic’? With almost 60 years of experience behind us, we can assure that it will be here.
