Welcome message from the Ambassador
A Chairde, Friends,
Welcome to the website of the Embassy of Ireland to the Hellenic Republic. I hope the site will be a useful gateway for information about Ireland and the work of the Embassy.
Ireland and Greece enjoy a close and warm relationship. While the Embassy has been here since 1978, the history of contact between our peoples goes back many centuries. Today we work together bilaterally and in the European Union. We also collaborate closely in other international organisations to project our shared values into the wider world.
While our friendship has never been stronger, my Government attaches great importance to renewing and reinforcing Ireland’s links with Greece. The Embassy is active in promoting the diversity and vibrancy of our relationship. We work to develop business and trade between our countries; enhance tourism links; promote education in Ireland; foster academic relations; institute cultural exchanges; and build a mutual appreciation for our traditions and customs. The Embassy is also here to help any Irish residents in Greece or Irish visitors to this country.
Our countries have faced considerable economic and social difficulties over the last number of years; however, by working together to find common solutions, we are emerging stronger than ever. That experience demonstrates that we are interlinked in important new ways and must craft a collective path towards future prosperity. Now more than ever, it is crucial for Ireland and Greece to ensure that our voices are heard in Europe and the wider world.
Our Embassy team spares no effort in meeting the continuing challenges and is always ready to help. If you have an idea about a new project or venture involving Ireland, I would encourage you to get in touch with us. We are committed to doing everything possible to ensure that the connections between Ireland and Greece continue to blossom.
Σας ευχαριστώ πάρα πολύ για την επίσκεψη.
Le gach dea-ghui,
