Why partner with Irish digital entertainment companies?

Ireland’s rich heritage in animation has developed a global reputation for combining storytelling, visual artistry and digital innovation to produce exceptional content. With a strong focus on R&D, innovation, upskilling and new talent development – much of which is supported by Enterprise Ireland – Irish visual entertainment is set to continue enchanting international audiences for decades to come.

Enterprise Ireland works closely with Animation Ireland as a partner organisation. Animation Ireland is the trade association for leading Irish animation studios working together to promote Ireland’s world class sector internationally.

Global Reputation
Always at the forefront of entertainment development, Ireland has a reputation for combining world-class storytelling, artistry and technology. Animation company Jam Media won a BAFTA for its animated series “Roy” and creative content studio Piranha Bar won an Emmy for hybrid animation “Last Hijack.”
As technology has leapt forward, Irish animators and VFX specialists have become adept at creating unique IP for TV, film, games, mobile and VR/AR applications. A highly coordinated industry collaborates at home and abroad to produce content that is highly marketable to international audiences, while losing none of its distinctive magic.
Ireland is recognised for its world-class talent pool and over 1,700 people are currently employed in Irish animation alone. A strong focus on R&D, innovation, upskilling and new talent development has ensured that the Irish digital entertainment industry is set up to succeed.
