Céad míle fáilte

Welcome to the Irish World Heritage Centre.

Céad míle fáilte.

The Irish World Heritage Centre (IWHC) is a modern and accessible conference and events venue based in Manchester.

It is a major hub for the Irish community in the northwest of England, with a diverse programme of traditional cultural activities. These include Irish music, dance and Irish language groups.

The Irish World Heritage Centre showcases a unique bar, ‘The Wild Geese Bar’ which has panoramic views of Manchester city centre. The bar opens out onto a large garden, which is enclosed by an Iron-Age Celtic fort style wall.

Our centre is home to a shop selling your favourite Irish food brands and weekly newspapers. It also has a popular cafe serving light bites and a delicious Irish Sunday Dinners.
