As the recently accredited Irish Ambassador to Estonia, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Irish Embassy in Tallinn.
Estonia and Ireland have a great deal in common including our love of music, the arts, traditional song and dance, and sports. While we are both relatively small countries at the opposite sides of Europe, we have shared interests in such areas as agriculture, education and information technology.
The role of the Embassy is to help build on our shared cultural interests, values and the excellent relations between Estonia and Ireland, particularly as two very active and committed members of the European Union and the international community.
The Embassy also works to promote trade, tourism and investment between Ireland and Estonia. In this context, the facilities of the Embassy are available to Irish individuals and companies working under the aegis of our semi state actors including Enterprise Ireland, Bord Bia and Tourism Ireland.
While the Irish community in Estonia is relatively small, it is a very friendly and active community. The Embassy also works to support the cultural activities of the Irish community in Estonia and to provide consular assistance as required. The provision of visas to Estonian residents, as appropriate, is a central part of our work.
I hope you find this website very interesting and helpful. Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org . Subject to our limited resources, we are also happy to personally respond to queries from individuals about visiting Ireland (or more general queries), and to make presentations to groups on request should we be in a position to do so.
