Housed in a magnificent 18th century building beside the Panthéon in Paris, with a remarkable heritage as the former Irish College, the Centre Culturel Irlandais is Ireland’s cultural flagship in Europe.

The Centre presents the work of contemporary Irish artists, reinforces the rich heritage of Franco-Irish relations in today’s international context and fosters a vibrant and creative resident community. In addition to its diverse cultural programme, the CCI houses France’s primary multi-media library of resources on Ireland as well as significant historic archives and an Old Library.
