About Us

Valencia Irish Cultural Association (VICA) is a non-profit voluntary association that promotes Irish culture in Valencia by organising events that are interesting for Irish people and, at the same time, afford opportunities for Valencians and other nationalities to experience and learn more about Ireland and Irish culture.

As well as hosting events, VICA works with other organisations interested in Irish culture that want to promote their event to the Irish community in Valencia.

We hope that our Association offers something for all ages and interests and we extend a warm welcome to anyone with an Irish heritage, or simply a love of, or interest in, Ireland. To join the Association, or just to learn more, feel free to contact us via the email form in the contact section.
