The Basel Irish Club was established in 2006 to provide a focal point for Irish people, their families, friends and those interested in all things Irish in the Basel region.

The Club aims:
- To provide a focal point for Irish people, their families, friends and those interested in Ireland.
- To promote Irish social and cultural activities and events.
- To promote a broader understanding of Ireland and things Irish in the region.


The Basel Irish Club operates from a core committee elected at an Annual General Meeting of its members. The Basel Irish Club organises social, cultural and recreational events and networking opportunities for all members, their families and friends. The Basel Irish Club also plays an important communications function, issuing regular newsletters and social media updates, with details of upcoming events in Basel, as well as general information which may be of interest to the Irish community and those with a connection to Ireland in Basel.
