The Irish-Hungarian Business Circle (IHBC) is a not-for-profit, member-based, politically independent organisation established in 2005 to facilitate and develop business and social networks between Ireland and Hungary and within the Irish/Hungarian community as a whole.

We are a contact point for Irish businesses interested in setting up in Hungary and for Hungarian business wishing to set up in Ireland. We’re not just about business, though. Our aim is to link all Irish people living in Hungary and all Irish companies operating in Hungary.

An additional focus is on community involvement – bridging the divide between expats and locals. We live here; we work here; and we want to contribute to the community.  The IHBC is an ideal platform for both cultures to mix and learn from each other. Some examples of what we do…
