Irish Culture

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 Greece. 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 Greece and Ireland. It's one of our greatest competitive advantages. It’s also our most effective way of connecting with the Irish community.

What we do

We're involved in a broad range of cultural activities, which raise awareness of Ireland and also enhance our ties with Greece.

Embassy cultural initiatives

The Embassy supports a range of cultural initiatives throughout the year, collaborating with other groups in music, literature and the visual arts. We are always interested in collaborating in new and exciting ways, so please get in touch if you have any ideas.

Get involved in Irish community activities

Over the years, generations of Irish people have made invaluable contributions to all aspects of life in their new homes, in politics, the arts, business and sport. Their patriotism co-exists with the contribution they have made in their new communities.
