Bank of Ireland offers a wide range of fixed and variable rate products for both new and existing customers. You can even choose both - a twin interest rate - where you put a percentage of your mortgage on a fixed rate and the rest on a variable rate.
Our fixed rate mortgages are available for periods of 1, 2, 3, 5 and 10 years.

- During the fixed rate period, you may be liable for fixed rate breakage fees if you:

- Pay off all or part of your mortgage.
Variable interest rates
If you choose a variable interest rate:

The lender is Bank of Ireland Mortgages. Lending criteria and terms and conditions apply. A typical mortgage to buy your home of €100,000 over 20 years with 240 monthly instalments costs €615.79 per month at 4.2% variable (Annual Percentage Rate of Charge (APRC) 4.3%). APRC includes €150 valuation fee and mortgage charge of €175 paid to the Property Registration Authority. The total amount you pay is €148,114.60. We require property and life insurance. You mortgage your home to secure the loan. Maximum loan is generally 3.5 times gross annual income and 80% of the property value (90% of the property value for first time buyers). A 1% interest rate rise would increase monthly repayments by €54.02 per month. The cost of your monthly repayments may increase – if you do not keep up your repayments you may lose your home.
At the end of a fixed rate period, existing customers on a fixed rate can choose from our range of fixed rate options or roll to the prevailing Loan to Value Variable rate. Mortgage applicants must be over 18.
Warning: The cost of your monthly repayments may increase.
Warning: You may have to pay charges if you pay off a fixed–rate loan early.

Warning: If you do not meet the repayments on your loan, your account will go into arrears. This may affect your credit rating, which may limit your ability to access credit in the future.
