Irish Culture

By showcasing Ireland's rich cultural heritage, we bring Ireland closer to Chile and South America. We can also work to connect people with their Irish heritage.

Irish Culture

Our culture

Ireland's culture is a unique national strength and a source of particularly strong links between Chile and Ireland. It's also a great way of connecting with the Irish community.

Our unique culture and heritage feed our creativity and make us what we are. We tell the story of Ireland and her people through our music, poetry, art, literature and film. Sometimes it's joyous, sometimes tragic. It can make us laugh and it can force us to face uncomfortable truths but it is always, always inspiring.

Did you know? Ireland has produced four winners of the Nobel Prize for Literature: George Bernard Shaw, William Butler Yeats, Samuel Beckett and Seamus Heaney.
