Irish banks w/ relationship to US banks

We're going on a tour of Ireland for our Honeymoon then hopping over to Paris for a few days. On the tripadvisor Paris board I learned that some French bank has a relationship w/ Bank of America so we don't have to pay fees to use the ATMs. Do any Irish banks have a similar relationship?

Also how much money do you think 2 frugal HMs on a budget should have for walking around pocket money? I'm thinking about $100 per day. Our meals in Ireland are included on our tour. Sound reasonable?

I can't answer the question about the bank relationship.

$100 (approx €70) is plenty for daily pocket money for two people. I assume all your meals are covered by the tour and I also assume that this pocket money will not be used for any expensive gift purchases.

It is your bank that charges the fee,not the Irish ATM's.

Bank of Ireland I think has a relationship with US banks, but it won't affect your own bank charges on ATMs.

In the US banks charge $2-3 to use an ATM if you are not a customer. That is not the case here so the banks here will not be charging you to use the machines
