WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF THE EMBASSY OF IRELAND IN ROME!
Ireland and Italy have enjoyed a deep relationship over the
centuries. Today we share a particularly warm and close friendship
as enthusiastic and committed members of the European Union.
The Italian-Irish relationship has many dimensions including the
pursuit of shared interests in Europe and the promotion of shared
values in the wider world; significant and expanding business and
trade between our countries with exciting potential for further
development; and the mutual enrichment which flows from the
exceptional strength and vibrancy of our respective cultures. The
human dimension of the relationship is particularly striking –
namely the natural affinity and warmth between Irish and Italians
whenever and wherever we meet - as business colleagues, as
tourists, on the sports field, as members of the many extended
Irish-Italian families, or simply as friends.
Whether you wish to visit Ireland, to do business with Ireland, to
enjoy Irish culture, or simply to know about more Ireland, I hope
that you will find this website helpful. I hope it will
also be of assistance to Irish citizens wishing to avail of our
consular services. My colleagues at the Irish Embassy and I will be
very happy to provide any additional assistance.
Un caro saluto
St Patricks Day greetings from the President Michael D.
