Hi Bonnie,

If you're not much into Irish culture, I'm not sure there's a lot to
interest you at the Center, other than maybe the geneology sessions.
They do have a nice pub :-) And a nice library, but the focus is
really on classes and programs. Here's the website if you want to
take a look at what they currently have to offer:

Another option is the upcoming Irish Fest, it runs from July 13-15,
and would be a way to get a feel for the place without feeling like
you've wasted a trip if it turns out you're not that interested in
the regular programming. But you could at least see the place, hear
some music, have a pint, visit the library and little museum, browse
the crafts. Here's the fest's website:

We have a lot of south siders that come up for the ceili dancing or
theater or concerts, you would certainly be welcome to come check it
out!

Cheryl
