The mission of the Irish American Heritage Center (IHAC) is to nurture and strengthen Irish culture and heritage through programs emphasizing Irish music, literature, drama, traditional dancing, fine arts, and the Irish and Irish-Americans’ constructive contributions to the United States of America.
Located on Chicago’s northwest side in a historic, renovated, turn-of-the-20th century building that sprawls over a full city block, the IAHC is a destination for people of Irish descent and those who wish to learn more about the Irish heritage.
