By showcasing Ireland's rich cultural heritage, we can make long-term and positive connections between the people of Ireland and Poland.
Ireland's culture is a unique national strength and a source of particularly strong links between Poland and Ireland.
What we do
The Embassy is involved in a broad range of cultural activities, which raise awareness of Ireland and also enhances the connections between the people of Poland and Ireland.

Fundacja Kultury Irlandzkiej
The Irish Cultural Foundation (Fundacja Kultury Irlandzkiej) is based in Poznan and offers an extensive programme of Irish cultural events throughout Poland.
Your Irish Heritage
Some 70 million people around the world claim Irish roots. If you are one of them, there are a number of ways you can celebrate your heritage and discover more about where you came from.
Irish community activities
Over the years, generations of Irish people have made invaluable contributions to all aspects of life in their new home countries, in politics, the arts, business and sport. Their patriotism coexists with the contribution they have made in their new communities.
In Poland, the Irish Chamber of Commerce and the Cumann Warszawa GAA are both active in promoting business and Irish sport. The St. Patrick's Foundation supports Polish charities through its fundraising.
