Daragh Cassidy from price comparison site bonkers.ie described the changes as "a real kick in the teeth for consumers.”
He is advising unhappy customers to switch to ‘digital-only’ banks such as N26 and Revolut.
"These new banks offer a host of fun and novel services, allow you to sign up in minutes, offer great value, and for all intents and purposes work just like a traditional current account", he said.
