We are usually asked about:
A safe deposit box is an individually stored container held within a highly secure and private vault, only accessible by the key holder. They are used to store valuable possessions and documents that you might not wish to keep at home. At Sentinel Vaults, you can guarantee the ultimate security for the contents of your safe deposit box.
Banks no longer offer safekeeping services. Sentinel Vaults is the only safe deposit facility in Ireland that operates an original, purpose-built bank vault. Our vaults provide ultimate security, guaranteeing you complete peace of mind.
To open an account with Sentinel Vaults, we will need suitable proof of ID (including a current, valid passport or current, valid EU Driving licence, and a utility bill dated within 3 months). Photocopies are not accepted.
At Sentinel Vaults, we provide the option for you to have up to four applicants on your account. This can be family members or close friends.
We pride ourselves on our ability to cater our services to suit each of our clients, so we are happy to take on special instructions to meet your needs and requirements.
Safe deposit boxes are mainly used for valuable, precious or irreplaceable possessions, as well the storage of gold bullion and the safekeeping of important documents. For a more in-depth description of what you can keep in your safe deposit box, have a look here.
The contents of your safe deposit box are completely private. Only you know the contents of your box.
To offer our customers the ultimate privacy, we offer private viewing rooms inside the vault.

Our open hours are 9.30am – 5.30pm on Monday to Friday, and 11am to 3pm on Saturday and Sunday. For security purposes, the latest permitted entry time is 15 minutes before advertised closing times.
You cannot access the vault outside of work hours. Once the doors are locked, they are secure until the next business day.
You receive two keys when you open a safe deposit box with Sentinel Vaults. A €100 refundable key deposit fee is required, and we will not have a copy of your keys in our possession.
If you lose your keys, we advise you to come and have the lock replaced for your safe deposit box to keep the security of your contents as tight as possible. Charges may apply.
Where there is only one applicant, we offer a ‘Special Instructions’ form, on which the nominees can be named who will be given access, only in the event of the applicant’s death or incapacitation. The nominee or nominees mentioned must then present proof of identification, an original death certificate or a doctor’s letter of invalidity.
If this form is not on file and there are no other applicants, no items can be removed from the box until a relevant grant of probate has been shown, for example.
