Religion in Ireland


Although predominantly Roman Catholic, Ireland today is a multi-cultural society where all religions are embraced and respected as playing vital roles in the societal make-up of the country.


Other religious groups in Ireland include the Church of Ireland, Presbyterian, Methodist and Baptist Churches as well as Eastern Orthodox, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons and Salvation Army Communities.  There are also centres for Buddhists, Hindus, Baha'is and those of the Islamic and Jewish faiths.

Most of Ireland’s higher institutions have suitable prayer rooms for students to practice their faith when they are studying in Ireland.
