Situated in the very heart of bohemian Paris in the elegant 5th arrondissement and just around the corner from the Pantheon lies the former College des Irlandais, now the Irish Cultural Centre. The college was home to a community of Irish priests, seminarians and lay scholars dating back to 1578. In 1945 the building was commandeered by the U.S. Army... More

This is a unique jewel just blocks from the Sorbonne in Paris. It has a fabulous garden to visit and all kinds of exhibitions to see relating to Irish culture. The day I visited, it had a terrific photography exhibition of pictures taken throughout the Emerald Isle. As the Curators saw I was enjoying the photographs so, they asked me... More

We stayed for three nights on a sightseeing trip.. Location wise we found it excellent - Rue des Irlandais is a very quiet street near the latin quarter. It's close to wonderful attractions such as the Panthenon, the Luxembourg gardens and the Jardin des Plantes. The metro station Cardinal Lemoine is a five minute walk, which connects easily with RER... More

The Centre Culturel Irlandais boasts many attractions. The well kept courtyard is magnificent and provides an excellent location for picnics and lunches. The chapel is a wonderful relic of times gone by and allows for relaxation from the bustle of everyday Parisian life. Even the staff are ultra friendly, provided of course that you are a visitor and not actually... More

The Centre offers reasonably priced accommodation in a central location. You won't get any frills, but you also won't be better placed for visiting attractions etc. It is a historic building, with a lovely courtyard for sitting out; the rooms are en suite and simply furnished.

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
