The way you bank is changing. We are too.

More and more banking is now done online or using our mobile app. That’s why, starting in October 2021, we will be making significant changes to our branch network, while continuing to provide access to local banking services for our customers.

  • Changes to our branch network

    From October 2021, Bank of Ireland will operate a smaller branch network of 169 locations nationwide.

    In addition to our branch network, our new arrangement with An Post will enable our Personal and Business Current account and Demand Deposit account customers to carry out a range of banking transactions at over 900 post offices across the country for no additional charge. This arrangement will be in place before any branches close*.

    Nothing will change until October 2021. For now, branches that are due to close will continue to operate as normal with no change to your day-to-day banking. You don’t need to take any action. We will be writing to impacted customers of the closing branches in the coming weeks.

    Answers to frequently asked questions can be found here.

  • Business Customers

    We’re making changes to our branch network as part of an ongoing process of investment in new services and in response to the majority of our business customers who are choosing digital banking options.

    These changes are being made so that we have a branch network that meets the demands of our customers today and into the future, while continuing to expand and improve our digital services

    Importantly, we’re making these changes in a way that protects local access to banking in person, for those who want it, through a new arrangement with An Post.

    There will be dedicated  post office locations for some business customers transacting at certain values. We will be in touch with these business customers closer to the launch date.

    After the branch closures, we will continue to have a nationwide presence of 169 branches, with multiple locations in every county in Ireland. Our business customers will also have access to the An Post network of more than 900 locations. Combined, that means Bank of Ireland business customers will have more than 1,000 places to bank, by the end of 2021.

  • Digital banking

    We recently launched our new mobile banking app which enables customers to carry out an even wider range of day-to-day banking from their smartphone and tablet. These services can also be accessed through our new desktop banking service.

    A supportive video series to guide you on each step to using mobile banking is also available here. Each video includes captions and an Irish Sign Language interpreter.

    The booklet below is an easy to read* summary of all the important changes that will take place to banking services in the coming months.
