I have to say that this reminded me slightly of the Bank of England building in London.The trouble is that the image they give and the reality of the situation are not always the same thing.

Got there for money exchange, check the timings before you go.. Usually before 4:30 it closes, but they close the money exchange system by 3pm so have to reach before that.. I got my money exchange on my third trip though, Same is with all the banks in the area. Rate was lower than the international market at that time... More

Be honest about it: the simple staring out of a car can work very relaxing on the quiet mind when you see the architectural building of the bank of Ireland on the background.

The Bank of Ireland is an interesting spot because inside it, the Irish who worked for Irish independence, worked hard and has no windows because of it. cool

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.

If you are travelling to Ireland or have reason to do business there the Bank of Ireland is the premier choice for banking. We have had dealings with them for two years now and the customer relations and quality of staff are excellent. The foreign exchange group work to get you the best rates in the market and their efficiency... More

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
