Northern Ireland Currency Guide


Northern Ireland uses the British Pound.


There are plenty of ATMs in Northern Ireland in both the major cities and towns. Generally, you’ll find them around banks, in convenience stores, petrol stations, bars, post offices and supermarkets. The machines accept all kinds of foreign cards. Just check with your bank before you leave to make sure you can access your money from ATM facilities in Northern Ireland, and to find out what international withdrawal fees might apply to your card.


It’s always handy to have some cash when you are travelling. You can pre-purchase British Pounds before you leave Australia from Travel Money Oz to avoid paying fees and commissions, or change it when you arrive. There are currency exchange desks at all banks and you can also find exchange services in some major department stores.

Travel Cards

Don't have a credit card? For safe spending overseas, consider taking a pre-paid Cash Passport on your Northern Ireland holiday. Cash Passports allow you to load British Pounds and other currencies onto the card, which you can then access at various ATMS and use wherever MasterCard is accepted. Your Cash Passport card has both a security pin and signature required for safe spending.
