New to Germany

If you have recently moved to Germany, you may wish to meet with other Irish citizens who are part of a local organisation or business network that can provide you with general advice, information and guidance.

There are also many different types of Irish societies and organisations in the regions of Hesse, Rheinland-Pfalz and Saarland including German Irish Friendship societies, as well as Irish music bands, Irish dancing schools and groups and Irish and Celtic music festivals. Other groups promote Irish sport, film, the Irish language or other events for the community.

Below is a selection of some of these groups and societies. If you wish to add a group to the list, please contact the Consulate General. This list is provided for information purposes only. Please note that the Consulate General is not responsible for the content of external websites or activities of groups/societies.
