We checked all three main banks in Dublin and Bank of Ireland was by far the best exchange for selling Us Dollars and getting Euros. There must be some fraud issues with US $100 bills so I would bring $50. They let you exchange us $100 with a passport and limit to $500 a day a person. In other denominations... More

It is possible to see the old parliment room upon request, totally worth it for history buffs. Also it's great to go into the bank on cold days to enjoy their two huge open fires.

Central location, so hard to miss. We were first in National Wax Museum, which was right next to Bank of Ireland. Beautiful, big old buildinf from outside and inside.

Amazing building and architecture. Almost in the heart of Dublin, with monumental and beautiful foundaments and walls. One of the most beautiful buildings in this city in my opinion.

First of all I love this building which used to be the Parliament in the past. Maybe you think it's just a building but when you go inside and look and the ceiling, it's magnificent. So pretty you can't stop looking. In the winter they put the fireplaces on and they are HUGE and make a good big flame in... More

It seems like a good idea to open an account with the Bank of Ireland and wire money from the USA. However the Bank of Ireland said it could not be done online, and it further sounds like you cannot open an account with them unless you have residence in Ireland. They were not helpful at all and difficult to... More

There are numerous reasons why this bar/restaurant is amazing: the decor is unbelieveable, the atmosphere is just buzzing, the food is well cooked, excellent presentation and not expensive. But the most impressive barman who can pull two pints in each hand, top off the four previous pints and kick the fridge door closed with his foot all at the same... More

The people who worked there were very friendly and helpful. We were able to exchange money. They were helpful and entertaining to watch. The bank was very busy with locals as well as out of town people. They offered places to visit and eat while we were in Dublin
