Team Ireland in the U.S.A.

The Embassy works with Ireland’s Consulates and State Agencies to pursue opportunities that will deliver economic growth and jobs for Ireland. We also help maintain and enhance links with our Irish-American diaspora and promote Irish culture in new and traditional forms.

The Embassy works closely with Ireland’s Consulates and State Agencies throughout the United States to promote trade, tourism and inward investment. We can:

  • Support Irish companies who want to find and access new markets and help with resolving commercial difficulties where possible;
  • Provide general advice on doing business locally and, through our network of contacts, pursue export and investment opportunities that will benefit Ireland;
  • Work to secure market access for Irish products in key sectors in high-growth and emerging markets.

The Embassy, Ireland’s Consulates and Irish Honorary Consuls also help to provide consular assistance to Irish citizens who need it while travelling in the United States.
