Ambassador Barbara Jones

Barbara Jones became Ambassador of Ireland to Mexico in September 2017. 

On behalf of the Embassy in Mexico City, I would like to welcome you to our website and hope that you will find it both interesting and useful.

Ireland and Mexico have many shared experiences, including colonial histories and a rich cultural diversity in both our countries. Both of us have had to deal with the problem of large scale emigration. Over the centuries, Irish people have had an important relationship with Mexico.

The Embassy in Mexico City also represents Ireland in Cuba, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Colombia and Peru and works to promote cordial relations and foster mutual understanding between the Government and people of Ireland and each of these countries.

The Honorary Consulates of Ireland in Cancún (Mexico), Guatemala City (Guatemala), San Salvador (El Salvador), Panama City (Panama), Bogotá (Colombia) and Lima (Peru) maintain close contact with the Embassy and assist Irish citizens in consular matters.

While the Embassy is located in Mexico City, we aim to be accessible in all of the countries to which we are accredited. So wherever you are, we are here to assist you with any queries you may have.

Finally, if you have any suggestions for ways in which we can improve our website, please let us know. To sign up for our newsletter please contact us. You can also follow us on Twitter at @IrishEmbMexico
