About
At the Irish Cultural Museum of New Orleans you will experience a beautiful Spanish Courtyard among colonial buildings, and a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. The Museum consists of interactive kiosks, an auditorium featuring the award winning documentary "Irish New Orleans", a research and reading library, artifacts, and a very unique Coffee House with Gifts and Jewelry specializing in Celtic and Irish New Orleans themed products. This very unique learning facility is the result of a two year collaboration of individuals who are very passionate about the City of New Orleans, its history and its cultures. Audio/Video producers, photographers, researchers, archivists, historians, computer programmers, graphic designers, architects, interior designers, developers, community leaders, and many other have all worked to bring to life the first Museum of its kind in New Orleans. A Monument to the vibrant culture of the City's Irish and their heritage.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.

Thank you Michael!

While wandering through the French Quarter we found this fantastic gem of Irish culture. While my wife had a cup of tea, I had a fantastic conversation with Michael over a flight of excellent Irish whiskey. Everything about this place was outstanding from the beautiful garden to the proprietor's superior knowledge of Irish whiskey. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon Michael!

Nice patio for Irish drinks and treats

Small museum but relaxing patio to enjoy a Guinness and eat meat pies. Worth a visit, especially if going to the Costume and Culture Mardi Gras shop across the street.

Wonderful Irish place in NOLA!!
Feb 2020
OK, you CAN find (silly) faults like someone who posted that serving Guinness in a Murphy's glass is a sin (SO WHAT??? the beer was GREAT!!! you have to focus on a half FULL glass!!!) , blah blah blah.. so , no, it's not really an "in depth Museum" per se but it is a wonderful place with great beer, Irish whiskey, Irish coffee (with REAL Irish whisky and real espresso).. the service is wonderful, the place is cozy and clean and the prices were very reasonable...we'll definitely be going back.

Great place to stop in for a drink!

I think museum is a bit of an overstatement because it is only one room, a courtyard and a bar. They serve a great cold Irish coffee. We had a great time while we were there. Worth a visit!

A few notice boards do not a museum make
Dec 2019 • Couples
There was some interesting information displayed but unfortunately it does not constitute a museum for me.

On the upside the attached bar was nice to sit in the courtyard and enjoy a drink.

However, serving Guinness in a Murphy's glass is sacreligious.

Great Place to Visit
Nov 2019 • Family
My family and I had a great time here. The staff was so friendly and even gave additional places that we should visit. The museum was interesting and the drinks were so good! You have to visit this place! It's low key and relaxing environment is perfect to get away from the craziness that is New Orleans!

Get an Irish coffee!
Mar 2019 • Family
We were staying a week in Nola and I passed by here several times to see it closed. However on Thursday evening it was opened and we went in. My husband was impressed with their Irish coffee so he had 2. I had a latte and we shared a piece of banana bread. They even made my son his own “coffee” (homemade chocolate milk). Cost about $29. We visited with Matthew and he was super friendly. We quickly looked through the little museum as by then our toddler was ready to go. The next night we were walking by about 10pm and they were closing up but Matthew ran back to make my husband another Irish coffee. Definitely pop in here when walking by!!

Learn about Ireland with a cup of Irish coffee!
Mar 2019 • Couples
If you are Irish, or wish you were Irish, you won't regret visiting this quaint Irish museum and pub. My wife and I started with an Irish coffee at the bar and spent some time discussing Ireland with the owners. I haven't tasted a better Irish coffee! Displays of Irish history are very interesting and worth reading. We returned to the bar to sample a flight of various Irish whiskeys. The outdoor courtyard is a lovely place to spend some time away from the craziness of Bourbon street. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.
