Permanent Representation

How Ireland is represented in the EU

Based in Brussels, the Permanent Representation of Ireland to the European Union brings together under one roof civil servants from nearly every Irish Government Department, making it the State’s largest diplomatic mission abroad.

Our main function is to promote, and represent Ireland’s interests in the EU.
