Irish Channel Area Insight

  • Santi Adams
    This area was formerly a neighborhood of Irish working class immigrants who fled Ireland during the potato famine in the early 19th century. Many of these Irish workers helped build the New Basin Canal, which connected Lake Pontchartrain to the city. There were other immigrants as well, such as, Italians, Germans, and free African Americans. During the 20th century, most of the immigrants living in the Irish Channel worked in the nearby Port of New Orleans, and the many breweries that were common. They found the small cottages and rows of shotgun houses very affordable compared to the adjacent, more affluent, Garden District neighborhood.

    In the last few years, the Irish Channel has become a hugely popular, and still affordable, place to live, with many new arrivals intermingling with local multi-generational families. Many popular restaurants, shops, and bars are within walking distance. The charming single and double shotguns are irresistible, and many are being converted to camelbacks (with a second floor). The hugely popular annual St. Patrick's Day parade draws a huge crowd every year and there is an equally large festive block party at two Irish neighborhood bars, Parasol's and Tracy's.

    The Irish Channel has become one of the hottest neighborhoods in Uptown New Orleans. Many homebuyers are flocking to the Channel for the charm of the historic homes, the accessibility to downtown, the shops and attractions on Magazine Street, and the diversity of the neighborhood. The Historic District Landmarks Commission (HDLC) even keeps an eye on property renovations to ensure owners maintain the look and feel of this rare historic district. And let's not forget the Channel is the heart of all St. Patty's Day celebrations in town!
