“The most imaginative, appealing, and stimulating Irish Christmas show to be seen and heard in America—bar none.” - Earle Hitchner, Irish Echo

What Christmas should be about—celebration, craic, good music and song, the closeness of friends and family, and the thought spared for our sisters and brothers on the margins of life.” - Bill Whelan, Grammy Award-winning composer of Riverdance

The critically-acclaimed concert An Irish Christmas—now in its seventh year—has become a staple of New York’s holiday season. Each year, sold-out audiences have reveled in the warm glow of this intimate event that features songs like “The January Man,” “Christmas in the Trenches,” and the perennial sing along favorite “Miss Fogarty’s Christmas Cake.” Mick Moloney leads a cast of America’s top Irish and world musicians through a truly unique journey of music, dance and storytelling and transforms the IAC into a cozy Irish living room where one and all are welcome.

Every night a surprise guest joins Mick and the musicians for a “fireside” chat. Past visitors have included Gabriel Byrne, Dan Barry, Colum McCann, Michael Patrick MacDonald, Belinda McKeon, Malachy McCourt, Sebastian Junger and Christine Quinn.
