Greetings from the Ambassador

A warm welcome to the official website of the Embassy of Denmark in Dublin.


The Irish President Michael D. Higgins welcoming the Danish Ambassador Uffe Balslev 

Much has happened in the last years in both Ireland and Denmark. After the global economic crisis, we are navigating through unchartered waters, and although it at times seems like a struggle without an end we know that, one day, we will be sailing into calmer seas.

The bond between Denmark and Ireland stretches back to age of the Vikings where the Danes and our other Scandinavian neighbours were not always the most peaceful visitors. But time heals all wounds. The relationship between Denmark and Ireland is an example of this as it has grown strong and rewarding both politically and economically. Our comparable sizes, shared interests, and historic links make for a solid foundation on which cooperation between our two countries can take place.

Ireland and Denmark share many thoughts and views on issues and opportunities stemming from the globalised world. The main goal of our Embassy is to represent Denmark and promote Danish interests and views in Ireland. It is also to strengthen the cooperation between our two countries by engaging with all parts of Irish society to the mutual benefits of the Danes and the Irish.
