The building is beautiful and the House of Lords' room was incredible. The bank was very busy but it was not a problem to walk through to the former meeting place.

My wife and I were passing by and saw the Bank of Ireland, which has a very impressive architecture. The architecture is Palladian and it calls attention because of its beauty. The architect was James Gandon and it was built in 1785.

I didn't actually go into the bank but it's presents in the city is magnificent and the history it carries being built during a glass tax and to this day having no windows. Worth the peek if your in the area.

The people working in the bank are nice and helpful. That being said the over-all bank is terrible. I am an international student here for my MA and opened an account with Bank of Ireland. I had drawn a large cashiers check for my tuition and living expenses to deposit in the bank once I opened it. It is been... More

Used to be a bank - now an over the top décor restaurant. Great food - sit in the balcony - it is pretty up there. VERY noisy however!

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.

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.
