Did you know there are 18 Consulates in Cork?

21 January 2018
By Bryan Smyth

A capital city such as Dublin has many foreign Embassies.
A secondary city such as Cork has many Consulates.

A Consulate can be headed by:

  • a Career Consul (A civil servant from the sending country)
  • an Honorary Consul (A resident of the receiving country, who is usually involved in a private business of his own, and can use his existing office as an ‘Honorary Consulate’ when required)

Here in Cork there are no Career Consuls, but there are plenty of Honorary Consuls, more than you might think!

Our listing below was compiled from public sources, then corrected using local knowledge, so in many ways it is more up to date than the listing of the Department of Foreign Affairs. This is because often Honorary Consuls move office, or leave Cork, and the Department’s website might not reflect such changes for some time.

We hope that this page might be of some assistance to citizens of the respective countries requiring consular assistance. The photos will be invaluable in this regard. It’s important to again note, that most Honorary Consuls have other work/life commitments, and their time is valuable.

If you are an Honorary Consul and would like us to edit your listing please feel free to email.
