About Us

Passion and commitment. Nothing gets the mind and dreams going faster than a gathering of passionate Irish folk. And nothing gets accomplished faster than a brilliant idea fostered in this kind of environment. Enter, the Irish Cultural Center.

Born out of the growing desire to firmly establish Kingston’s burgeoning Rondout as a premier regional – even national – destination for Irish-Americans, the ICCHV become the reality of a unique dream. It’s taken perseverance, hard work and hundreds of dedicated hours from countless community leaders and volunteers. The land for the ICCHV site was purchased in January 2013, the bank loan was paid in May 2013 and we now own the property outright.
