Team Ireland in the USA
The Irish Consulate in Austin works closely with our Embassy and with Irish state agencies across the US to promote Ireland in a variety of ways.
The Consulate in Austin works with Ireland’s Embassy and other Consulates and State Agencies to pursue opportunities that will deliver economic growth and jobs for Ireland. We also help maintain and enhance links with our Irish-American diaspora and promote Irish culture in new and traditional forms.
The Consulate works closely with Ireland’s Embassy and other Consulates and State Agencies throughout the United States to promote trade, tourism and inward investment. We can:
- Support Irish companies who want to find and access new markets;
- Provide general advice on doing business locally and, through our network of contacts, pursue export and investment opportunities that will benefit Ireland;
- Work to secure market access for Irish products in key sectors in high-growth and emerging markets.
The Consulate also helps to provide emergency consular assistance to Irish citizens who need it while travelling in the United States.
