Anyone opened a bank account in the Republic of Ireland, but signed forms in the UK?

#1
For business reasons I need to open a Euro account in the RoI.

I've been trying to find a bank in England that has a tie-in with an Irish bank so that I can sign the forms in England, saving a trip to the RoI.

I just can't find a bank that can do this, so would appreciate a heads-up if anyone has been down this road before.

TIA

I have a current account with the Bank of Ireland, however, I was a resident over there when I opened it. I had to supply proof of address within the RoI and supply them with a PPS number. (Similar to our National Insurance number)

Back home in the UK now, but I have kept the RoI account open, (I still have money being paid into it) and like you, I couldn't find a UK based bank that has any tie ins, but I have heard that although it takes longer, (credit checks on your UK bank take fecking ages) you can open an Irish account with a UK address, but you will have to visit an Irish bank in person.

It was all a bit of a 'mare initially mate.

Allied Irish, if memory serves me correctly, have a branch in Berkley Square. Unsurprisingly they also have, or certainly used to have, one in Kilburn.
Look up the web site of both Allied Irish and B of I, they should have their UK branches listed. Open the account in the UK then transfer it to the Republic.

Allied Irish are also in Uxbridge in West London. I don't have a clue about opening a ROI bank account though.

Bank of Ireland operations in NI are under Bank of Ireland UK; you could worse than give them a go
