Description

Áras Uí Chonghaile is a modern inspirational visitor centre in the heart of Belfast’s Gaeltacht Quarter, with an insightful exhibition about James Connolly, a man of formidable ideas and remarkable vision.

From his birth in Edinburgh in 1868 to Irish parents, through to his death in Dublin 1916, his role as a pioneer of the early trade union movement and his extraordinary travels throughout Britain and America, visitors will be introduced to a man of remarkable ideas and writings.

The centre offers a thought provoking insight into James Connolly’s life, his politics and the impact he had on the history of the Island of Ireland.

Visitors can relax and enjoy local hospitality in the Hatch Coffee and browse the fascinating library.
