The Emerald Centre is a focal point for the local Irish community of Leicester & Leicestershire.

We play host to Irish community groups, local sports teams & deliver a wide range of quality initiatives open to all.


We are a registered charity and are based in the heart of an inner city estate that has very few resources or community buildings. We work with all age ranges & work with a variety of partner organisations & subcontractors to improve the quality of life, job prospects and social interaction of

those that use our facility.


The Emerald Centre consists of a community room where groups can meet and socialise, a smaller meeting room, a community garden, 4 changing rooms for sports for our inhouse sports teams and 2 large playing fields including the one and only Gaelic pitch in Leicester.


During the week the centre hosts various community groups and the office is open Monday to Friday 9.30am - 4.30pm. During the weekend the bar is open from 12noon every Saturday and Sunday.  


Rooms are available to hire for private functions if the date you require is free.

Prices start from £15 per hour. Please call Mary for more information. 0116 2769186
