Welcome to The Emerald Isle Club Website.

Over the past 60+ years the Club has become well-known in the Maryland Irish Community for its members' dedication and support of traditional Irish music and dance, Irish charities, Irish ancestry and language, and for its strong monthly ceili program.

We extend an invitation to all people who are strongly committed to these same ideals to join our organization and work to strengthen the awareness of Irish heritage in the Baltimore and Maryland communities. Read More.

Please join us at our Monthly Ceili.
