Home Improvement Loan Information

  • Apply online, in branch or by phone for amounts from €1,000 - €30,000. For amounts over €30,000 or joint applications, you can apply in your branch or by phoning us on 1890 724 724. The people at your branch or our phone banking team can help.

  • Loan terms from 1 to 7 years, up to €30,000 and for amounts sought between €30,000 and €60,000 the maximum term is 10 years.

  • Our rates are competitive for new loans with our standard lending rate at 8.95% APR up to  €50,000. For loans over that amount, contact your local branch or call 1890 724 724.  

  • Choose from weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayments.

  • Planned repayment holidays available when you take out your loan. You can request to take a repayment break at a set time every year, e.g. at Christmas, so your annual loan repayments are spread over 11 months instead of 12. This repayment option may impact on the amount and/or term of the loan and is only available if requested during loan application.

  • No charge for unscheduled repayments – that means, we won’t charge you extra if you make a payment to your loan outside of your normal scheduled repayment. If you are eligible for a grant from SEAI you can arrange to have your grant paid directly into your loan account.

  • If you are a Student Plus account holder and looking for a Reduced Rate Loan, please call our Student & Graduate Centre on 0818 303 203 (lines are open 9am to 5pm Monday – Friday). Or, you can apply through your local branch.

  • If you wish to restructure an existing loan with us, or clear your credit card, or overdraft, please contact your local branch to make an appointment with one of us who will go through your application with you.

How much can you borrow for your Home Improvement?

The amount you can borrow is based on your capacity to make regular repayments. It's important not to overstretch your payment and to consider the possibility of unexpected expenses.


The interest rate on our personal loan is variable and may change. However, your repayments stay the same, so if interest rates rise during the loan term, you will have to make some extra payments at the end of the term. If the rate on your loan falls, you may pay off your loan earlier. You can pay back your loan early or making unscheduled, additional repayments through your branch or Internet Banking at any time with no penalty.


Depending on your circumstances and needs, an AIB Top-Up Mortgage may also be an option for you to consider.
