Who can open a basic account?

Basic accounts can be opened for the customers that don't hold an account with another credit institution in Ireland. You may also be eligible to open it if you currently hold an account with a bank in Ireland, but have received a notice that it will be closed. If you want to understand the full eligibility criteria and the main features of the basic payment account, please refer to this page.

If you subsequently move to any of the non-basic account plans (for example, if you upgrade to any of our paid plans), you'll no longer have access to your basic account or any of its specific features. Also, you won't be able to convert back to the basic account later on.
