If you're looking to buy US Dollars, it can be useful to know how the exchange rate has changed over time so you can make a more informed decision on when to buy. Unfortunately, most US Dollar historical data are based on the unobtainable interbank rates that major banks trade at, not the 'high street' rate available to most customers. Our historical exchange rate graphs are different because we record the actual exchange rates that US Dollars are being offered at by Ireland's biggest foreign exchange providers, so the graphs below are indicative of what you could have bought at if you ordered on the day.
