Welcome to the Commodore Barry Arts and Cultural Center

Céad Míle Fáilte

A lot of us claim Irish heritage, but even if you don’t, the Commodore Barry Arts and Cultural Center opens its arms to you. Let us share our vibrant culture and take advantage of our many facilities—including our spacious and elegant ballroom. And join in the exciting activities sponsored by the many groups and organizations that make the Center their home. Click HERE to join our mailing list so you can stay up to date on news and events happening at the Irish Center!

No matter who you are, no matter where your people hail from, as they say in the Irish language: Céad míle fáilte—a hundred thousand welcomes.
