Welcome to the official web page for the United Arts Club.
The United Arts Club has since its foundation in 1907 been a centre for people interested in the Arts; literature, music, painting, drama, film; and good conversation. It is a place to unwind, meet and make friends, encounter acquaintances and enjoy art. Situated in the heart of Georgian Dublin, the Club provides an oasis of tranquility in the centre of the city. Every month we run a diverse programme of events for our members and guests. These include art exhibitions, concerts, recitals, discussions, lectures, poetry readings and honorary dinners. The Club, steeped in history, occupies an important place in the artistic and social life of the city.
After special occasions such as literary dinners and the annual Garden Party photographs will be posted and can be viewed in our online gallery. We also encourage members to help develop the site and welcome any suggestions, photographs, drawings and archive material you would like to submit for publishing.
Our members include painters, sculptors, movie-makers, musicians, playwrights and poets, novelists and journalists, architects and designers, academics, diplomats, doctors, dentists, lawyers, scientists and students, all with a keen interest in the Arts. The election of new members is carried out monthly by the Committee and candidates must be proposed and seconded by members of the Club of three years standing.
The Club year begins on 1st January and subscriptions are adjusted accordingly. Membership is open to practitioners in all disciples of the Arts as well as to people who have a genuine interest in the Arts. Membership is divided into various categories, principally Town, Country, Overseas and Artist Membership with subscription rates adjusted per status.
