Banks in Ireland

Banks in Ireland offer a wide range of services such as bank accounts, credit cards, loans, mortgages, investments, and insurance.

The two most common types of bank accounts are checking and savings accounts.

Most Irish residents receive salaries in their checking account and use a bank card linked to this account to pay for everyday goods, such as groceries.

In addition to a checking account, people generally have a savings account that has a higher interest rate. They transfer part of their income to this savings account each month to create personal savings. These savings can be used for special purchases, such as a car or vacation. These two accounts can be in the same bank or in different banks.

When choosing a bank, it is important to take a closer look to get the best deal. To avoid paying high commissions, you can look for banks that offer free services if you meet conditions such as having a minimum amount in your account and / or depositing a minimum monthly amount in your account (this is generally possible if you receive a salary paid in your account).

Banks often provide a combined ATM and debit card with your checking account. ATMs are common in Ireland, but it is worth checking if your new bank has sufficient availability in the region where you live. Banks also provide banking services via the Internet / online, telephone and mobile phone, however, the quality of this service may vary between banks.
