How about riece? Its features are:

    * Several IRC servers may be used at the same time.
    * Riece can be dynamically extended by add-on modules.
    * Installation is easy. Riece doesn't depend on other elisp packages.
    * Setup is easy. Automatically save/restore the configuration.
    * Riece uses separate windows to display users, channels, and dialogues. 
Users can select the window layout.
    * Step by step instruction is included.
    * Mostly compliant with RFC 2812.

    (quoted from http://www.nongnu.org/riece/index.html.en)

In addition, it has a connector to emacs's url package.
So you can do like: 

  (progn (url-mm-url "irc://irc.gnome.org:6667/#glade")
         (url-mm-url "irc://irc.gnome.org:6667/#gtk"))
