In addition to its role as one of the top-ranked Irish Studies programs in the United States, Glucksman Ireland House NYU is proud to provide access to Irish and Irish-American culture to the wider community.

Glucksman Ireland House invites the public to its active public event series, offered weekly or biweekly during the academic year. See this semester's calendar of events.

NYU Senior Language Lecturer Pádraig Ó Cearúill teaches evening Irish language classes to the public at the elementary, intermediate, and advanced levels.

The Washington Square Harp and Shamrock Orchestra is an Irish traditional music ensemble created by Prof. Mick Moloney to utilize the talent and ethnomusicology available inside and outside the NYU community.

Glucksman Ireland House has brought Irish and Irish-American culture to the public through major public exhibitions.

Many of Glucksman Ireland House's public events have been recorded and are available online through iTunes; specially prepared podcasts created through the GIH Oral History of Irish America Project are also available on iTunes.
