The Irish Center In Philadelphia, also known as the The Society of Commodore John Barry, USN,  is to sponsor and support programs and activities in the Delaware Valley--includes Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware--which celebrate and promote Irish art, culture, and heritage.

The Irish Center offers a welcoming atmosphere to both Irish and non-Irish individuals and a wide selection of cultural, educational and social programs and activities structured to appeal to a diverse audience. The Center serves as the home for any number of Irish organizations and societies including the Philadelphia Ceili Group, Danny Browne AOH Division 80, and the Cummins School of Irish Dance. Lessons in Irish music and dance for adults and children are held weekly. A traditional Irish music session is held most Friday evenings.
