Irish Night sold out last year, so make your reservations soon! The tradition of Irish Night pays homage to Lauralton Hall's roots and celebrates our long affinity for Irish culture and hospitality beginning with Catherine McAuley, who founded the Sisters of Mercy in Dublin. And, you don't have to be Irish to enjoy Irish Night! You'll enjoy LH camaraderie along with great music, dancing, food, and drink. The event draws guests from across Fairfield and New Haven Counties and brings together LH parents, alumnae, faculty, staff, retirees, and friends.
