Use your account to make and receive payments outside Ireland.

We make international payments easy for you.

You can use Internet Banking which is easier, more secure and cheaper than doing it over the counter in a branch. To see how, visit our International Payments FAQs.

Paying someone outside Ireland

There are two different ways to do this:

Paylink Euro

With Paylink Euro you can transfer euro to most European countries, which can be found in our FAQs. You’ll need the IBAN (International Bank Account Number) for the people you are paying. We also have an urgent version of this service if you need to speed things up, for which you’ll also need the person’s BIC (Bank Identification Code).


Use Paylink to transfer in all major currencies to almost anywhere in the world. We also have an urgent version of this as well.

Here’s what you’ll need when making a payment outside Ireland:

(a) The name and address of the people you are paying.
(b) Either their BIC, or the name and address of their bank branch.
(c) Their IBAN
(d) The national bank code (where available) of the bank where the person you are paying is held. You don’t need this if you use their IBAN.
