“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

Ireland at Christmas—the peat fire burning, carolers on the doorstep, berries on the holly, mince pies and mulled wine—there’s nothing quite like it.

Year after year we bring the glow of an Irish Christmas to New York with a mirthful evening of storytelling, dancing and seasonal music that warms the holiday spirit.

After seven seasons of sold-out shows at Irish Arts Center, we expand to Symphony Space, our upper west side home-away-from-home, with brand new material from your favorite musicians led by the legendary Mick Moloney.  

With surprise special guests from the worlds of arts and letters—past years have included neighborly drop-bys from Ellen McCourt, Gabriel Byrne, Jean Butler, Dan Barry, Colum McCann, and more—give yourself, your family and friends the gift of one of New York’s warmest musical holiday traditions.
