Established in 2007,The Irish Cultural Centre of California (ICCC) celebrates and promotes Irish culture and heritage for the benefit of our community.
The Centre, a 501(c)3 public not-for-profit, is the result of a strategic planning process conducted by the United Irish Cultural Center, a social club established in 1974 in San Francisco. Located in the social club's beautiful facility at 2700 45th Avenue in San Francisco, California, the ICCC is the hub of all things Irish in California. The Centre is a
collaborative, unique space where people come together to celebrate
the Irish: past, present, and future.
