The Irish Club of WA
St Andrew Society of WA are delighted to have a base in the Irish Club where they can hold their committee meeting, Scottish country dance nights, smaller events such as whisky tasting and family ceilidhs and simply enjoy some social time over a beer or a glass of wine with ‘Celtic’ friends wishing to expand a community relationship.
The Irish Club was formed in 1950 to promote the national and cultural aspects of Irish life in Perth. From humble beginnings, the club has grown and is now located on Townshend Road in Subiaco. The club has a non-political, non-sectarian policy and welcomes people of all nationalities to enjoy the ambiance of the club as members or guests of members.
It is a hub for Irish emigrants to have a place to socialise and build a sense of community in a foreign land. Over the years, the Club has expanded its role in Western Australian society.
