Irish Community & Culture

Welcome / Fáilte

Welcome to the London Irish Centre – the Irish Heart of London. Our mission is to empower and enrich people’s lives through Irish community and culture.

The London Irish Centre has served the Irish community in London since it was first established in 1954 and we will continue to offer a range of services to older people within the London Irish community, some of whom have attended the centre for many years. Our heritage is important to us, but we are focused on present and future needs.

Aligned to our core values, the London Irish Centre is sensitive and responsive to the needs of all people, and we want to extend our services to other communities as part of an inclusive, multicultural approach with the aim of building resilient and cohesive neighbourhoods.
