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.

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
