College-quality programming for community audiences.

Irish College of MN offers year-round classes, colloquia, and seminars in Irish language, history, literature, spirituality, musicology, poetry, mythology, and the Celtic creative arts.

Inspired both by the centuries-old Irish College of Paris (College des Irlandais) that was set up in 1578 and the Irish colleges in the Gaeltacht, Irish-speaking areas along Ireland's west coast, the Irish College of Minnesota seeks to follow the example of these models in promoting Irish culture, history, and language.
