About Us

The Maine Irish Heritage Center is one of the most magnificent buildings in Maine. Our Great Hall has soaring cathedral ceilings, spacious antique white oak seating, a traditional aisle, and stunning stained glass windows. The bell will enthrall your guests as it rings across the Portland peninsula, marking a day you will cherish forever! For your reception, we have a separate space available which comfortably seats up to 250 guests.

Formerly a church, the breath-taking beauty of the space will provide a unique and elegant backdrop for your ceremony, and the sense of tradition and history will make your wedding feel more meaningful and memorable. It can also be a great way you to honor your family’s religious traditions without having a religious ceremony. No matter what type of wedding you plan here, you’ll be sure to have a special day!
