Message from Ambassador
Ambassador of Ireland to the Republic of Slovenia.
As we start 2017 I would like to wish you all a healthy, happy and fruitful year ahead.
I am delighted to welcome you to the website of the Embassy of Ireland in Ljubljana. I hope that you will find it a useful and informative resource. We are always happy to hear your comments on how to improve the site.
While 2017 does not have the same importance to us as the past year there are some significant international anniversaries including the 500th anniversary of Luther's Reformation, the 350th anniversary of the birth of Jonathan Swift, the centenary of the Russian revolution as well as several other anniversaries of Irish interest.
We intend through the year to bring you what we hope you will find to be a varied and interesting programme of events. Visit this site often for updates and to follow us on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn to stay up to date with our activities.
An essential element of the Embassy's work is to support our citizens here, both those who are resident and those who are visiting. We are also at the service of Irish businesses in their development of trading and investment links with Slovenia. Please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance.
