Studying in Ireland for 1 year

Jump to last reply

My daughter will be in a Master's program in Dublin (at NCAD) for one year, starting in September. We are wondering if she needs to open an account at an Irish bank to take care of living expenses like rent. During her past travels, a credit card and debit card have worked well, but she never had large monthly expenses like rent to pay. We've done a wire transfer to her school for the first tuition payment, but would rather avoid the $40 fee to do that in the future. It sounds like a local Irish bank account may be the solution, but don't know how complicated it is to open an account. I've heard it's become more difficult/impossible for foreign nationals to open bank accounts (security, money laundering, etc.), so don't know what other options we'll have if that's the case. Grateful for any suggestions!
