Distinctive and imposing bank building on a prominent site, in the main financial district of Cork. Built as a head office for the Munster and Leinster Bank, and now a branch of Allied Irish Banks after a series of mergers in the 1960.

The building has a fine range of Ionic columns across the upper storeys of the façade, and has a setback attic storey with ballustrade. The two ends of the building feature carved representations of the Munster and Leinster crests on the attic storey, but are minus the sculptural groups originally designed for them.
