Irish Culture

Olympia Theatre Dame street Dublin

By showcasing Ireland's rich cultural heritage, we can reap long-term and positive benefits for Ireland's reputation and its relationship with the people of Bulgaria. We can also work to connect people with their Irish heritage.

Culture & Heritage

Our Culture

Ireland's culture is a unique national strength and a source of particularly strong links between Bulgaria and Ireland. Bulgarian appreciation of Irish culture, illustrates the value of Irish writers, musicians and traditional dancers acts as a "door opener" between our two peoples. It's also out most effective way of connecting with the Irish community.

What we do

We're involved in a range of cultural activities, which raise awareness of Ireland and also enhance our ties with Bulgaria. We promote cultural relations through a number of initiatives. For example, the Embassy supports a range of cultural initiatives throughout the year, through collaboration with festival organisers, artists and writers.
