Got a lump sum and don’t know what to do with it? We can help! We've got a range of fixed term deposit accounts with terms from 6 months to 5 years so you can choose the best term for your needs.
Our fixed term deposit accounts earn you a competitive fixed rate. See below for our rates:
|Term||Required balance||Gross interest rate||Gross return||AER|
|6 month fixed||€5,000+||1.00%||0.49%||1.00%|
|1 year fixed||€5,000+||2.00%||2.00%||2.00%|
Non-Personal accounts are limited to one account per customer and the maximum balance allowed for non-personal accounts is €1,000,000
At the end of your fixed term when your account matures, you can withdraw your savings and interest, minus DIRT (Deposit Interest Retention Tax). You can access your money at any time should you need it, however an early withdrawal charge will apply.
If you change your mind, you can withdraw some or all of your account balance up to 14 calendar days from investment date, without charge.
If we don’t hear from you before your fixed term account matures it automatically converts to the Instant Access account for matured fixed term deposits until instructions are received from you.
This will be at a variable interest rate which is currently 0.01% Gross/AER, You can find out more about our interest rates in any of our branches or online.

The above calculation is based on a set of assumptions (see below) and is intended to provide you with a guide as to the potential gross interest return that may be applicable. The actual return that you receive may vary from this calculation where your account does not operate as per these assumptions.
* Annual Equivalent Rate (AER) illustrates what the interest would be if interest was paid and compounded each year. Our AER calculation assumes that the account is held for a year and that the interest rate remains constant.
** Gross Return Interest is calculated daily and payable at the end of the term for a fixed term deposit account or annually at the relevant interest payment date for a demand/ notice variable rate account. The interest payable assumes that the lump sum is invested for the full fixed term period or a full year (365 days), as appropriate to the account type.
