The decision of the United Kingdom to leave the European Union presents unprecedented political, economic and diplomatic challenges for Ireland. The way in which we deal with these challenges will be a major factor in shaping the future of our island and our relationship with Britain for years to come.

This website provides you with a resource to learn about the work the Government is undertaking to protect your interests in the Brexit negotiations, and to address the consequences of Brexit here in Ireland.

On this site, you can find out about the Government’s most recent engagements, outreach events, and ongoing consultation work on Brexit. You can access a comprehensive Frequently Asked Questions section, and also read the Key Documents published by the Government outlining our negotiation strategy and preparations for the potential impacts of Brexit.

This site includes links to a wide range of Government and independent research reports that provide a broad analysis of all key issues and sectors.

Finally, we welcome you to sign-up to our Government Brexit Update newsletter service. This email alert outlines the latest Irish Government developments on Brexit preparation, outreach and supports.
