Celtic Club Melbourne | Celtic at Metropolitan
The Celtic Club Melbourne is Australia's oldest Irish Club and has a proud history and important legacy to protect as the home of Melbourne's Irish community. The club has a reputation for providing a warm and hearty welcome since 1887.
While our original home on Queen Street is currently under construction, we have taken our base to The Metropolitan in North Melbourne.
Celtic at Metro offers drink specials for $8 Guinness Pints and other drinks are available at the bar.
The Metropolitan has a beautiful function space that can be booked for your next event, party, conference, book launches etc.
Irish and other Celtic groups at the club continue to grow. Music sessions are a regular feature at the Celtic Club as well as cultural and heritage events.
Melbourne's Celtic Club has a proud and turbulent history that reflects in many ways the history of Australia during the second half of its period of European settlement.
To do justice to the Club's history, it is necessary to include the long and bloody struggle for Irish Home Rule but that is not the purpose of this overview.
At the time the Celtic Club was established in 1887, the Home Rule Campaign in Ireland was at an all time low. There was every indication for Home Rule sympathisers that ideal would remain unrealised for many generations to come.
On September 20th, 1887, at the Imperial Hotel, Bourke Street in a rather more colourful Melbourne of top hats and morning suits, of gas lamps and hansom cabs, and hotels that did not clear their bars before midnight, the Celtic Club was born. It was the year of Queen Victoria's Jubilee and the first Colonial Conference in London of delegates from each of the self-governing British Colonies.
