Bank of Ireland’s FDI Landing Space in Stephen’s Green is a vital port of call for companies investing in Ireland.
Bank of Ireland has relaunched its Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) Landing Space in Stephen’s Green, following refurbishment during the pandemic.
The FDI Landing Space provides companies arriving into Ireland with co-working office space, meeting rooms and event space above the Stephens Green branch in Dublin city centre.
“It has been fantastic to see FDI companies who have directly benefited from our Stephen’s Green facility going from strength to strength and announcing significant growth plans within the Irish market over the years”
Bank of Ireland’s FDI team has supported over 600 international companies to set up in the Irish market over the past decade.
Room to grow
The FDI Landing Space provides hot desks, meeting rooms and boardrooms, with companies from the US, UK, EU, China, Australia, Japan and Canada availing of the space in the past.
Bank of Ireland’s dedicated FDI team provides access to a full service offering for international companies, including electronic banking, payments, foreign exchange and treasury facilities, private wealth management and employee benefits solutions.

Following refurbishment of the space, we are now reopening again and we look forward to supporting a new crop of international companies into the future.”
