We offer a wide range of fixed rate options ranging from 12 months to 10 years. You can even choose a combination of fixed and variable rates – a Twin interest rate – where you fix a portion of your mortgage and put the rest on a variable rate.
APRC calculations are based on the cost per month on a €100,000 mortgage over 20 years. Fixed rates roll to the corresponding new business variable rate at the end of the fixed period.
APRC is the Annual Percentage rate of Charge.
LTV is Loan to Value.

3 months’ deferred payment is optional and subject to approval. After the deferred payment period, repayments are adjusted to repay the loan within its original term. The cost of the loan will be higher. A life Policy is required for an amount equal to 102% of the loan.
The lender is Bank of Ireland Mortgages. Lending criteria and terms and conditions apply. Over 18s only. Mortgage approval is subject to assessment of suitability and affordability. You mortgage your property to secure the loan. We require property and life insurance. 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, 70% of the full property value for Buy to Let) but these limits may vary. A typical mortgage 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%). The total amount you pay is €148,114.60. APRC includes €150 valuation fee and mortgage charge of €175 paid to the Property Registration Authority. 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].
