Check out the bullet holes in the pillar outside, before walking in to admire the lovely architecture here. It won't take long and my American cousins thought it a beautiful historical building. Enjoy!

The architecture inside and out is something to see. A lot of history and very interesting with no admission fee.

If passing pop in and look at the old House of Lords. Free. Lovely old room of great historic importance. Many famous people have entered here. Shame to miss it if you are nearby.

It's a nice looking bank, in a building with an interesting history. But, in the end, it's just a architecturally interesting bank. Worth a quick peek inside, if you're in the area. But not worth a special trip.

This building hosts the Bank of Ireland. It sits facing Trinity College only separated from it by the College green street. I have seen the building from inside when I had business with the bank. I am not aware though of any guided tours inside it

If you love beautiful architecture and historical sites, this is a must. An amazing building in itself, beautifully crafted and a delight to see. Also, check out the banking hall. They don't make them like this anymore. You'll not need long here to see everything.

This building is quite imposing and definitely worth a look inside. We saw the original Irish House of Lords chamber within and were treated to a talk on the history of the building and much more.

The building of the Bank of Ireland is very impressive and curious because it is windowless!!. Way back it was parliament. There is a story behind the windows, it is about amount of the tax. The smaller the window amt of tax is also less!!. This building is near GPO and noticeable because of the architecture.

This building is a little bit underestimated by travel guide books and tourist. It is in the heart of Dublin next to Trinity College. It is a very nice architecture you should spend some time in front of it! :-)
