On behalf of the Embassy in Buenos Aires, I would like to welcome
you to our website and hope that you will find it useful.
This Embassy represents Ireland in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile,
Paraguay and Uruguay and works to promote cordial relations and
foster mutual understanding between the government and people of
Ireland and each of these five countries. The Embassy also has
consular responsibilities for Ecuador. Our work is made easy by the
fact that there is a long tradition of friendship and partnership
between our peoples, exemplified in particular by the important
Irish community in Argentina, the largest in the non-English
speaking world. In recent times, these relations have been enriched
by commercial, cultural and educational links, information on which
is available in these pages.
The Consulates of Ireland in Santiago (Chile), La Paz (Bolivia) and
Quito (Ecuador) are headed by Honorary Consuls who maintain close
contact with the Embassy and who assists Irish citizens and others
in consular matters.
While the Embassy is located in Buenos Aires, we want to be
accessible to all of the Southern Cone, so wherever you are, we are
here to assist you with any queries you may have.
Finally, if you have any suggestions for ways in which we can
improve our website, please tell us and play your part in improving
