The daily said Poland will be the first European country to have a full diplomatic presence in Northern Ireland.
Although more than 30,000 Polish citizens live in Northern Ireland, consular services are currently provided by usually over-subscribed monthly consular visits to Belfast, added The Irish News.
The paper cited Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski as saying the decision acknowledged the “close historic ties between Poland and the United Kingdom".
At the moment, only the United States and China have a consulate in Northern Ireland, the Irish News noted.
