We regularly monitor and compare the Top Savings Accounts in Ireland. We check the best interest rates on instant access deposits as well as regular savings accounts and fixed rate deposits.
The interest rates in 2018 are still very low . As a general rule, you’ll usually get better interest rates if you tie your money up for longer.
With Rabo Bank announcing that they are pulling out of Ireland – the choices for savings accounts will be even smaller from May 2018.
Note: DIRT (Deposit Interest Retention Tax) decreased from 39% to 37% from Jan 1st 2018 – so that will mean slightly more interest for savers.

Best Rates on Fixed Terms Up To Five Years
You could also earn a bit more interest with a regular savings account
or a fixed-term deposit . But remember, with a fixed term account you may not be able to access your money immediately (or even not until the end of the term) – and there could be a hefty withdrawal fee.
Whilst we strive to maintain the rates and update them when changes occur – customers should double check with the financial institutions for confirmation of current rates.
