It takes bravery to start and grow a business and at AIB we’re backing brave. Our Business Start-up package offers you all the daily banking products you need to get set-up, and the supports and tools you need to grow your business.


The team at AIB Galway are very proud to continue our engagement with the PorterShed, as main sponsor. This sponsorship is a key part of our drive to support the business life of our community, beyond the provision of banking services. We recognise and applaud the achievements of the PorterShed team including its recent Validator regional roadshow for early-stage start-up‘s and its Open for Business initiative (that highlighted local businesses which continue to serve customers during the Covid crisis). These recent initiatives supplement the long-term value created by the team in supporting the creation of hundreds of jobs over the last four years and really show the value that the PorterShed is adding to the economy in the West of Ireland. Go n-eiri libh go leir!”

European IP law firm grows with the PorterShed

“Keltie is a European law firm that specialises in the field of Intellectual Property, handling patent and trade mark protection for our clients’ inventions and brands. Founded in the UK, Keltie opened in Galway in 2016 – coincidentally, not long after the PorterShed opened in Eyre Square. We joined originally as a Corporate Member and have just opened our second Galway office in the new PorterShed a Dó building. It’s been great to share the PorterShed’s journey, to be among the creative people we love to work with, and to have grown our business beside theirs.”
