The Emerald Isle Club is a community ranging in age from a few weeks to over eight decades. In true Irish tradition, our values center on family and friends; we love to sing, dance, laugh, tell stories and generally have a good time. Visit our events and Céilí pages to get a feel for what our club is all about.

Our members have a wide range of interests beyond our monthly Céilí that includes ancestry, travel, language, and much more. We believe there will be something to interest almost everyone. We welcome you to come out and join our growing community.

Irish Music and Dance

Céilís (pronounced kay-lees) have a long tradition as a place for friends to gather for fun, fellowship and lots of dancing. The Irish carried this tradition of social dances with them as they spread around the world. Here in the US, it was the inspiration for both our line dancing and our square dancing. The EIC includes both styles in our popular monthly Céilís. Live music, an experienced caller, and friendly, seasoned dancers will be there to help you get started.

St. Patrick’s Parade

The St. Patrick’s Parade has been referred to as “The Jewel in Maryland’s Emerald Crown”, and the EIC has always been a part of it! Join us as we march down Charles Street to celebrate our Irish heritage.

Irish Festival

Second only to the Parade is the Maryland Irish Festival, hosted in mid-November by Irish Charities of Maryland (ICM). The Festival is a weekend immersion in Irish culture and the EIC has been a part of it for more than 30 years. Our booth is known for its coffee, tea, Irish coffee, scones and soda bread. Volunteers have the opportunity to see friends and enjoy live Irish music. All profits are donated to local charities.

Memorial Mass

The annual Memorial Mass is an Emerald Isle Club treasured tradition. This liturgy commemorates friends and family members who died in the previous year with a special service to honor their names.
