The bank stands across the way from Trinity college.. it dies nit have any window but for some strange reason it doesn't look like it's missing window because of the way it was build to reflect window like features but only bricks in its place no glass. It dates back to 1900s when there was a charge/tax for each window... More

interesting site of history and all of the windows on the ground floor have been covered in. You would expect that it would be very dark inside, but be prepared as the roof is transparent and lets in light so that it was very surprising

This building in the past has housed the Parliament and is in current use as a very busy bank. The ushers will not let you take photographs. The interior is magnificent and the ceiling is testimony to that. The exterior is beautifully lit up at night. Well worth a visit.

Near the Temple Bar area of the city and an excellent example of palladian architecture. Beautiful in daylight and even better when it is lit up at night. It was closed when we were there but, apparently, it is quite amazing inside too.

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.

Sitting on one of the main tourist thoroughfares in Dublin, College Green is The Bank of Ireland, An impressive colonial style building which would be a throw back to British rule here pre 1922. very much looks like some of the buildings you'd see in the city of London, and really impressive it is too, certainly lit up nice too...

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
