ICC Announces Opening Date of March 10

We are pleased to announce the opening date at our new location at 429 Morgan Road in West Springfield, MA. An open house period will begin on Friday, March 10, to invite our Patrons and the community to visit our new facility, including new office space, restaurant and traditional Irish pub.

The new Irish House Restaurant and Trinity Pub is managed by the professionals at the Log Cabin / Delaney House, and includes a handcrafted bar with custom woodwork, bar and table seating, fireplace and snug. An additional meeting room has been created for smaller events. The restaurant will feature the Log Cabin / Delaney House’s exceptional quality of food and service, and will serve as a training ground for staff. A full menu including starters, sandwiches, entrées and specials will be served in the cozy atmosphere of a Dublin pub.

This opening is the culmination of two years of hard work, since the ICC signed a twenty-year lease with the City of West Springfield in 2015 for the former home of the Elks Lodge. An extensive amount of work has been completed, including the cleaning out of the building, electric work, new plumbing and heating systems, kitchen renovation, new flooring, painting, and work on the grounds including new sidewalks and railings. Renovations are still ongoing, with additional stages planned that include a library and museum, and a performance hall.

The open house is designed as an introduction to the new space and a transitional period for the ICC, and is planned to last several months into the spring. At that time, access to the restaurant and pub will be limited to active ICC Patrons and guests, necessitated by the residential location and city zoning. The ICC office will continue to be open to all visitors for information. As always, the public is encouraged to attend ICC events, including concerts, lectures, and exhibits at our future library and museum. Community outreach and education is a vital part of the ICC’s mission, and will continue with programs such as Celtic Adventures for Kids this summer.

ICC President, Sean Cahillane, says “Our strategic planning goals call for growth and expanded outreach, and we seek to serve a wider audience throughout Western New England with enhanced educational, cultural and musical offerings. Our new home will provide the ICC with new, larger and better facilities thus allowing Patrons to gather in, and enjoy our Irish cultural offerings.” We encourage you visit our new space, and learn more about the ICC’s mission and future plans.
