Welcome Message

Merħba, fáilte and welcome to the website of the Embassy of Ireland in Malta. This is a resource for you where you will find information about Ireland, Ireland in Malta and about the services provided by the Embassy.

I am honoured and delighted to serve as the Ambassador of Ireland to Malta. Links between our two island nations go back a long time and continue to develop. Ireland's Embassy in Malta opened in 2005 and I am proud to lead the Embassy team in Valletta.

The Embassy works to promote closer ties between Ireland and Malta in the spheres of government, trade, culture, and people to people links. The Embassy is here to assist Irish people who may require support and if you would like any further information on our services please contact us.

Our two island nations enjoy a strong and warm friendship which is evident across our bilateral relationship as well as through our shared membership of the European Union. This friendship is experienced by Maltese and Irish people on a day to day basis including in the areas of education, culture and tourism. In my role as Ambassador I work to support the creation of opportunities for our links to develop and flourish, deepening the fond mutual affinities of our nations for each other.    


Teachtaireacht Fáilte

Merħba, fáilte chuig suíomh gréasáin Ambasadóir na hÉireann i Málta. Is acmhainn é an suíomh gréasáin duitse mar a mbeidh tú in ann teacht ar eolas ar Éirinn, ar Éirinn i Málta agus ar na seirbhísí a chuireann an ambasáid ar fáil.

Is cúis mhór áthais agus onóra dom go mbeidh mé i m'Ambasadóir d'Éirinn i Málta. Tá nasc láidir idir an dá oileán le fada an lá agus tá an nasc sin ag forbairt leis. Osclaíodh Ambasáid na hÉireann i Málta in 2005 agus is cúis bróid dom go bhfuil mé i gceannas ar fhoireann na hAmbasáide in Valletta.

Oibríonn an Ambasáid chun an caidreamh atá ann idir Éire agus Málta i ndáil le cúrsaí rialtais, cúrsaí trádála agus cúrsaí cultúir a chothú agus chun caidreamh idir daoine a chothú. Tá an Ambasáid anseo chun cabhrú le hÉireannaigh ar a bhfuil tacaíocht de dhíth agus más mian leat tuilleadh eolais a fháil ar na seirbhísí a chuirimid ar fáil, déan teagmháil linn.

Tá cairdeas mór idir an dá oileán agus tá sin le sonrú sa chaidreamh déthaobhach atá againn lena chéile agus le ballraíocht an dá oileán san Aontas Eorpach. Tá taithí ag na Máltaigh agus ag na hÉireannaigh ar an gcairdeas seo sa ghnáthshaol laethúil i réimse an oideachais, an chultúir agus na turasóireachta. Sa ról atá agam mar ambasadóir, oibrím chun deiseanna a chruthú lena ndéanfar na naisc atá againn lena chéile a fhorbairt agus a chothú d'fhonn an dáimh atá ag an dá náisiún lena chéile a threisiú a thuilleadh.
