The Bank of Ireland Facebook page is a place for fans of our brand to learn about Bank of Ireland products and services, share experiences, get tips for managing money and ask us questions about day to day banking. We have created the following guidelines to help make sure that all our fans that use this page do so in a safe and friendly manner and that everyone has the best possible experience.
Representatives from Bank of Ireland’s Social Media team will be here between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday, to answer your questions and queries and listen to your feedback.
NEVER POST PERSONAL FINANCIAL INFORMATION ON FACEBOOK - IT IS A PUBLIC FORUM WHICH MEANS ANYONE CAN SEE YOUR POSTS AND YOUR POSTS MAY APPEAR IN SEARCH ENGINE RESULTS.
Our team will endeavour to respond to your query as quickly as we can during the hours of 9.00am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. However some queries may take longer to resolve as we may need to contact other areas within Bank of Ireland.
All posts outside of our working hours will be addressed as soon as we’re back online i.e. the following working day. Outside of these hours and at weekends or Bank Holidays, if you need help and support, you can contact our customer service support team at 0818 365 365 Monday to Friday (8am – 12 midnight) and Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays (10am – 6pm) or at www.bankofireland.com/contact-us.
