Ambassador Maeve von Heynitz

Having arrived to Mexico in May 2021, Maeve von Heynitz is the Ambassador of Ireland to Mexico as well as Costa Rica, Cuba, Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Honduras


Welcome to the official website of the Embassy of Ireland in Mexico.

Ireland and Mexico share a long and positive history, dating back to the San Patricios Batallion in the 1840s and before.  We have many things in common, including our histories of migration and our past struggles for independence as well as the importance we attach to our rich cultural diversity and to the role of the family.


Mexico is Ireland’s most important trading partner in Latin America and the relationship has continued to strengthen in recent years.  We are both also longstanding supporters of the multilateral system and both our countries are serving together in 2021 and 2022 as non-permanent members of the United Nations Security Council.  This is the third time that we have served on the Council together.


It is a privilege for me to represent Ireland in Mexico as well as in our countries of secondary accreditation: Costa Rica, Cuba, Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Honduras. We are pleased to promote stronger cooperation and foster mutual understanding between the Government and people of Ireland, and each of these countries.


To support our work, we have Honorary Consulates in Cancun (Mexico), Guatemala City (Guatemala) and San Salvador (El Salvador), who maintain close communication with the Embassy, and assist Irish citizens in consular matters.  We are also proud to support and to cooperate with our small but thriving Irish communities and Irish organisations throughout the region.


While the Embassy is located in Mexico City, we aim to be accessible from all countries of accreditation. Please reach out through our various channels and we will be happy to assist with any queries you may have.
