Dubai Irish Society – to promote and support Irish Culture and the Irish Community in Dubai

The Dubai Irish Society was established in 1974 and is one of the earliest established ex pat societies in Dubai. The focus of the Dubai Irish Society is to promote and support Irish Culture and the Irish Community in Dubai. Since its inception The Dubai Irish Society provides social, sporting and cultural events relevant to Irish people living in Dubai.

In recent years the Dubai Irish Society has forged links with other Irish associations within the Emirate most notably the Irish Business Network (“IBN”), The Dubai Celts GAA Club and The Dubai Irish Golf Society. Through these links we have seen the society grow from strength to strength with record numbers of Gaelic Football teams traveling in from around the Gulf to attend the annual Dubai Duty Free Gulf Gaelic Games and also our social gatherings consistently boasting sold out events.

The Dubai Irish Society also works very closely with the Irish Embassy based in Abu Dhabi, the society has co – ordinated with the Embassy on high profile visits such as the visit of Uachtarán Na hEireann Mary McAleese and former Taoisigh.
