Written answers (Question to Foreign)

The functions, privileges and immunities of Honorary Consuls are set out in the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, 1963. The legal status of Honorary Consuls in Ireland is based on the Diplomatic Relations and Immunities Act, 1967 which gives effect in Irish Law to the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.

A full list of honorary consular representatives in Ireland is available on the Diplomatic List maintained by my Department and available on the Department's website here: www.dfa.ie/embassies/embassies-in-ireland/.

Below is the list of Honorary Consuls that have been appointed in Ireland between 2006 and 2021, identified by country, name, date of appointment and seat of post.
