After years of scrimping and saving, many hopeful homeowners dream of buying their first property this year, making 2023 the year they finally move into their forever homes.

To help make that dream a reality, Livin' Dublin, our series of AIB home events, is BACK with a brand-new mortgage event to help you get your foot on the property ladder.

Taking place in CHQ on Wednesday 1 February, is the ultimate evening out for hopeful first-time buyers, featuring an incredible panel of experts, essential mortgage tips and some very nice prizes for a couple of lucky winners.

On the night, you can expect a welcome reception from 6pm, with tasty nibbles to kickstart the evening. From 6.30-7.30 pm, host Brendan Courtney will lead a panel discussion with our team of experts, covering everything you need to know about buying your first home and giving you the chance to ask your all-important questions.


But that's not all! It's no secret that saving for a mortgage can put a strain on your spending habits. As you prioritise saving, you've likely had to cut back on a few luxuries, like nights away.
