AIB Bank opening times

Does anyone know of any AIB Banks in Dublin that may be open on a Sat?

I don't think any of them too.

A list of Branches is here and it contains opening times too

You can conduct some AIB transactions (cash lodgements I believe) in the post office which re open on Saturdays.

halifax is the only bank that feels a need to serve customers on saturdays afaik

i personally feel the regulator should step in and make them all open for at least a half day on saturdays

and stay open til 8pm weeknights like other countries


restricted banking from 10-4 is bollox

Would you be prepared to pay for it by way of fees? Because let me tell you if Halifax last the course in Ireland I'll be very suprised.

Halifax will be fine where i live, plenty of folk have moved to them just for their opening times, especially younger people. PTSB is open for 5 and a half hours on one weekday, cant remember which day, total joke.

Aib opens at half 9 locally.

Some AIB branches in Dublin (specifically the Clondalkin village one) close for 1 hour at lunch time. Can you believe that? Five hours opening , four and a half on a wednesday due to staff training.......

And you'll find that they pay fees for the pleasure of having these comforts.

And that's on a very small proportion of what the likes of AIB / BOI have in assets / liabilities.

AIB did have some branches that opened on Saturdays for non-cash transactions. That died out pretty quickly though.

I agree that mainstream branches should open to at least 6pm weekdays but unless customers are prepared to pay the cost of providing such services it won't happen in the short term. The way things are going I doubt customers are prepared to pay for anything these days.

In any event there's SFA that can be transacted on a Saturday bar lodging cash / chqs and perhaps opening an account. Any real business is transacted (all over the world) from Monday to Friday.

The post office does provide a service for AIB customers and perhaps it shoukd be rolled out to other banks but again there's a cost to same and unless customers are prepared to pay for same it won't happen.
