Welcome to the Northern Ireland Bureau

Northern Ireland is a dynamic, vibrant and forward-thinking region committed to promoting economic prosperity, cultural development and international growth and engagement. It is the world’s top destination for Financial Services technology investment and the number one international investment location for US cyber security firms. The success of television shows like Game of Thrones, a growing interest in Northern Ireland as a top travel destination, and its reputation as a global leader in the fields of peace, security and conflict resolution, has helped dramatically raise the profile of the region—particularly in North America. Today, Northern Ireland is widely regarded as a great place to visit, work, study, and invest.

What we do

The Northern Ireland Bureau is the diplomatic mission of the Northern Ireland Executive in the United States and Canada. We work to cultivate and strengthen links between various political, economic, educational, and cultural interests in Northern Ireland and North America. We also serve as a resource for individuals and organisations looking to learn and understand more about Northern Ireland, and about its relationship with the United States and Canada. Learn more
