From humble beginnings in 1991 and the opening of Cultúrlann when it accommodated only pupils, the centre has since evolved into a shining beacon at the centre of Belfast’s Gaeltacht Quarter. The small programme of events and courses began to grow and today the centre produces a full calendar music sessions, concerts, poetry readings, workshops, céilís and children’s art programmes, to name a few.

The centre is housed in the Old Broadway Presbyterian Church. This building was constructed in 1896 and served its congregation until 1982. The centre has an air of welcoming about it and encourages a drop in mentality, where visitors can engage with the locals and get the full Belfast Irish experience. This is where culture comes alive and depending on what your interest is, the centre is also a dynamic arts centre, a traditional Irish music centre, a tourist information point, a café or a place to buy books and crafts. But most of all this is a place where heritage is prided first and foremost and the Irish culture is free for everyone to explore.

The centre is also host to “The Gaeltacht Experience” – an authentic taste of Belfast’s urban Gaeltacht Quarter. During three courses of delicious Irish food you’ll be entertained by the sound of excellent harpists, traditional Irish music and some of the most talented dancers around. Keeping with the spirit of things, everyone is encouraged to join in on the fun so you can get a hands first feel for Irish culture at its best and with tutors on hand to teach you the basics of céilí dancing, it would be a shame not to join in and try out some new steps.
