About Bank of Ireland

The Bank of Ireland is an Irish commercial bank. It is one of the ‘Big Four’ of Irish banks and was established by Royal Charter in 1783.

The Bank of Ireland is not, and never has been, the Irish central bank but has performed many of a central bank’s functions, operating the Exchequer Account, acting as a bank of last resort in the 19th century and serving as the banker of the Irish Government until 1971.

Headquartered in Dublin, the bank operates throughout the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, where it prints its own banknotes in pounds sterling. In the rest of the world, the bank operates mostly through Bank of Ireland Corporate Banking, with services in Australia, the USA, France and Germany. The Bank of Ireland also provides financial services for the British Post Office.
