Buying your home doesn't need to be stressful

Thinking about Buying

A good first step is talking to a Bank of Ireland mortgage advisor. You can do this over the phone, in one of our 250 branches or one of our mobile mortgage managers can come to you. It is good to talk and we want to talk to you.

Getting Mortgage Ready

Planning is everything. Plan to save, plan to repay, plan to buy. If you already have a deposit saved then talk to us today.  If you are getting mortgage ready then perhaps attend one of our mortgage events or read our hints and tips.

Applying for a Mortgage

A mortgage from Bank of Ireland could move you even closer to your new home. If you're a first-time buyer, we'll pay your stamp duty to the value of 1% of your mortgage.* How about that for a house-warmer?

Making the Offer

Once you have Bank of Ireland full approval for a mortgage amount you can search for your new home, confident that the finance is in place.  That is real approval you can act on.  Then, when you find the one, the decision is yours.

Moving In

The bid has been accepted, the paperwork is complete and time off has been arranged. It is time to move in and make the home your home.  Leave the bank transfer to us and concentrate on all the other logistics. Try to enjoy the day, savour the moment and congratulate yourself. You have just arrived……. home.

NOTES:  Typical APR calculations are based on the cost per month on a €100,000 mortgage over 20 years. All fixed rates (new and existing) will roll to the corresponding existing business roll-to variable rate. A typical variable rate mortgage of €100,000 over 20 years costs €623.20 per month (Annual Percentage Rate (APR) 4.4%). The cost of your monthly repayments may increase. A 1% interest rate rise will increase this repayment to €677.55 (APR 5.4%). This is an increase of €54.35 per month. Information correct as at 5th January 2015.
